Circles South West helps the Police and Probation to make your community safer by holding to account offenders convicted of sexual offences. Circles of four or five volunteers work with an offender in a ‘Circle of Support and Accountability’, meeting them on a regular basis to monitor their behaviour and support their reintegration into the community.
