Midlands Volunteering

Building on the pioneering work of Circles UK, Respond are offering Circles of Support and Accountability (COSA) for young people & adults with a learning disability, autism or both experiencing loss, trauma or both.

We are piloting the COSA project in the West Midlands and need your support.

A Circle of Support and Accountability (COSA)

is a group of 4 – 6 volunteers from the local community who meet regularly with a young person or adult with learning disabilities experiencing loss, trauma or both. The COSA provides a supportive social network and helps the person to build a safe, positive and purposeful life which does not put them or others at risk.

We welcome people from all walks of life, different ages and cultural backgrounds.
