This booklet by Upswing has been created to enable and inspire care homes and day care centres to try out some simple circus games and exercises, all drawn from Homemade Circus. The exercises are designed to be carried out by staff even if they have no previous circus training.

Upswing was commissioned by Hull City of Culture 2017, funded by The Baring Foundation, to deliver a multi-sensory circus experience in care homes in the city. This booklet emerged out of that project and is designed for use by care homes and staff.
