The concept of support circles is not a new one. Mutual support in one form or another has always existed, and continues to exist in communities. However, the creation of intentional support circles for people with disabilities has their origins in Canada from the early 1980's.


For many of the families that Pave the Way has worked with a support circle is an intentional safeguarding strategy that families develop to ensure the safety and wellbeing of their family member with disability now and into the future.
