Core Aims
Helping children and adults with special needs make friends and integrate
The Friendship Circle provides a range of leisure and social opportunities that aim to promote equality, confidence and opportunity, as well as increasing integration into mainstream Jewish life.

Through the Friendship Circle social programmes our participants are able to build meaningful friendships with people who they wouldn’t normally socialise with, increase their social map and integrate into the wider community.

Participants are able to forge relationships with each other as well as with their buddies, creating a sense of belonging and raising self confidence.

Promoting Teenage Volunteering

Volunteering is fundamental to the work we do. Volunteering for the Friendship Circle is not only fun for our volunteers but gives them the opportunity for self development, improved career prospects and the chance to give something back to the community.

Our young volunteers tell us that the Friendship Circle makes them look inwardly at themselves, helps them be non-judgemental and have more patience and can empathize with the challenges faced by their special friends and their families.

Enhancing Spiritual Wellbeing

Events are planned around every Jewish Holiday giving a chance to experience the warmth and beauty of the Jewish traditions.

Shabbat meals are organised both on a group level and out in the community.

Jewish Craft workshops and Jewish cooking & baking classes, give hands on Jewish experiences.

Involvement in Jewish life and Jewish life experiences gives a sense of belonging and attachment as well as developing a spiritual awareness and wellbeing.
