Relationship circle

What is important to you will almost always include who is important to you. We can learn about and record the important people in someone’s life by having conversations and using the relationship circle.

What it does

It captures who a person knows, how they know them, who else in their circle knows them and how these networks and relationships can help a person to live the life they choose.

How it helps

It is a way of identifying who is important to a person, and to explore any important issues around those relationships. It feeds into support planning because it highlights those people who should be involved in planning, and helps to discover which relationships can be strengthened or supported.
