Full Circle


We want all children and young people to be happy, healthy and achieve their full potential, but sometimes they need specialist support for this to happen.

Full Circle is a specialist therapeutic service for children and young people with complex backgrounds who have had negative childhood experiences, who are not doing as well as we would expect, even though they are now safe from harm.

Ofsted said about our service, "The therapeutic service provided by Full Circle is invaluable. Using evidence based research, the service is making a real difference to children who have been traumatised by adverse childhood experiences, as well as supporting their carers." (September 2019).

Ofsted said about children, young people and families, "They receive tailored and highly effective support with their emotional needs from the specialist therapeutic Full Circle team. Foster carers and adopters are well supported by social workers and Full Circle in the transition and continuing care of children placed with them." (May 2022)
