This whakatauki speaks to the essence of our circle mahi-work. Whether we are beginning the process, introducing ourselves to individuals who have an interest in circles, approaching potential circle members, or encouraging the circle to look outside of itself to make new connections - our aim is to weave a sense of community for everyone involved.

What is a Community Circle?

Community Circles support people to do what matters to them. They are about finding out what is important to the person, thinking together about how to turn that purpose into meaningful action. The person and their circle explore current connections and help create new ones.

Kaupapa-Purpose of local circles 

People are using circles for lots of different reasons this year:

  • To have more friends and try new activities
  • Learn more skills to be ready to go flatting
  • Build relationships so not relying only on family
  • Grow in friendship skills and social confidence
  • Get out ‘there more’
  • Advice for work-health balance

At the heart of a circle is people, conversations and making a change.
