Circles South West is an award winning independent charity that prevents sexual abuse by reducing the risk of sexual re-offending. ‘Circles of Support and Accountability’ enable local volunteers to positively impact on the safe integration of people who have sexually harmed, including young people. Working closely with responsible statutory agencies we provide a complementary risk management approach, making our communities safer. We also provide education and support programmes for the partners, families and friends of those who have sexually harmed, enabling them to become ‘protectors’. Informed by our practice expertise, our training and consultancy for professionals is designed to enhance their skills, knowledge and understanding to more effectively engage with people who sexually harm, and contribute more widely to the prevention of sexual abuse.
