Trans Youth in care

We have produced a 50 page toolkit entitled Trans Youth in Care, a Toolkit for Social Care Professionals. There is nothing out there anywhere like it.

It is now available to anyone working with children and young people, local authorities, child care organisations and members of the public.

It can be downloaded by clicking the download button below.

It is available completely free of charge, but we are really hoping donations may be made to The Mermaids Charity

Youth zone

What makes positive care?

In October 2016 the young people from the Three Circles Youth Zone attended an animation Workshop titled #positivecare. The aim was to make a short stop motion film about what makes good care for a fostered child or young person. 

The film is used in training courses for foster carers titled 'promoting positive relationships'

The views and words used in the video are those of young people. 

If you would like to use this video for training, please contact our office on 01625 533531. We do not charge for using this resource but like to know where it is being shown for our information.

A video about the Three Circles Youth Zone

The Youth Zone are in the process of creating a series of videos title #positivecare. These can be used as a digital handbook to show any young people cared for by Three Circles Fostering. We have three produced so far and many more to come! One of them explains Seb's role and the reg 35 visits, another explains what a Personal Education Plan is and the third one was made by young people to advertise the youth zone. Let us know what you think!

What is a Personal Education Plan (PEP)? 

What is a Regulation 35 Visit?

What do you think - and why we listen

We produced a publication in Spring 2016 that outlines the opinions of the young people in Three Circles Fostering. Their views and how we respond to them. Click the image below to read this document.
