Job description

Building on the pioneering and effective work of Circles UK, Respond is able to offer Circles of
Support & Accountability to young people and adults with learning disabilities and/or autism who have sexually harmful behaviour.

A ’Circle of Support and Accountability’ is a group of 4-6 volunteers from the local community which forms a Circle around the person with the sexually harmful behaviour, known as the ‘Core Member’. The Circle provides a supportive social network that also requires the Core Member to take responsibility (be ‘accountable’) for his/her on-going risk management.

The Circle aims to prevent future sexual offending by reducing social isolation and supporting the
Core Member to live safely. Within the Circle, the Core Member can grow in self-esteem
and develop healthy relationships, maximising his/her chances of successfully re-integrating into the community in a safe and fulfilling way.

Who can apply?

You must be over 21 and prepared to make a commitment to the project for about 18 months. Volunteers would need to commit to 2 hours a week (one weekday evening).

We are looking for individuals with good communication skills and a high capacity for empathy. A positive approach to team work and collaborative working is also essential. We need volunteers from all walks of life since the Circle represent a kind of "mini-community" within the wider society. We particularly encourage male individuals to apply as most of our Core Members are male themselves.

Full training will be provided, along with regular on-going support and supervision from the CoSA coordinators.
