Foster Care Fortnight

It has been a busy Foster Care Fortnight here at Three Circles. 

The overarching message of Foster Care Fortnight is 'foster care transforms lives'.

We are passionate about the difference that foster care makes to the lives of fostered children and young people, and Foster Care Fortnight is an excellent opportunity to showcase that difference. But foster care doesn't just transform the lives of the young people who are fostered, it also has the power to change the lives of foster carers, their families and all those who are involved in fostering. 

We had lots of fun at the office creating a short video to showcase what makes us proud to support fostering. You can view it below........

We want to shout this statistic so loud. 

Since the early 2000's statistics on how many care leavers make it to university have been incredibly low. Ranging from 1% to a more recent 6%. These bleak statistics show that if you are a care leaver, you are 6 times less likely to go to University.
