Beamish L&D Event – what a blast, we had lots of learning an development activities, we learned all about Beamish Village and how hard it was to survive during those times. “The memories will last a lifetime alongside the laughter and the feelings of being with family on holiday” one of our service user said.

A message from our Chief Executive
I hope that you have all had a lovely Christmas. For some, this time will have been spent with family
or friends or perhaps even both. For others it will have been spent by themselves but hopefully
treasured as a relaxing time to indulge in some nice food a good movie or two!
New Year always brings new challenges, but, it can also bring new opportunities, adventures and
hope and this is what the Six Circle Management Board and staff team hope for you all. If we could
support these in any way, we will do our utmost to do so.
We send you our best wishes, our encouragement to try new things and ask that you can find a
moment to help and support others to do the same – particularly as our ethos is – “In meeting the
needs of others we meet the needs in ourselves” – and this way we can all benefit and prosper
throughout 2023 and beyond.
Thank you to all who have and are already supporting our mission and we look forward to this
continuing for many years to come.
The Perth Six Circle family, as we are fondly known, wishes you all a very Happy New Year
surrounded by support, love, friendship and hope.
