We are really pleased to meet you and we hope that you will like living with your foster carers.
Your foster carers home is your home. We want you to be as happy as you can be.
We are Three Circles - a fostering agency (we found the family you are living with and make sure they listen, respect and support you).
The Three Circles team really does care about your personal happiness and well being. We want to help you achieve your dreams and ambitions.
We always listen to you and do our very best to provide you with whatever support and help you need.
You may feel scared or upset - we get that - but we are going to do what we can to help you.
This magazine (below) has lots of useful tips about being fostered and loads more, including inspirational pull out poster, great apps to download, a quick and easy cake recipe and tips for your future!
From the TC Team.
