Community Recognition - Community Circle Wingecarribee First Birthday Celebration

20 March, 2024.

Community Circles Wingecarribee recently celebrated its first anniversary. Offering a place for people to build connections within the community, the initiative is run with the support of Wingecarribee Shire Council and has seen a year of successful events. Run by a coordinator, the group has had a number of community members go through the Community Circles training, allowing them to share their expertise and knowledge, such as the lawyer member offering advice, or facilitating a group for a particular demographic, such as the father co-facilitating a disability support group. Other unique offering include a Death Cafe, Italian speaking long lunch and a pub sing along. The program is funded by Wingecarribee Shire Council, along with the Touched by Olivia charity, and over the year has achieved its aim of offering a way for people to connect, in turn building community resilience. Thank you to all involved for bringing joy and connection to so many, and I look forward to seeing this initiative go from strength to strength in the future.
