Adopt with us

TACT is the UK’s largest Fostering & Adoption charity, with over 600 foster carers & adopters across England, Scotland and Wales. We’ve been helping to provide loving families for vulnerable children for 25 years.

As a charity, everything we do is for the benefit of children in care and on the fringes of care. We are beyond profit, which means that all surplus income is invested back into our services, to ensure our adopters and the children in their care receive the best possible support. We work tirelessly to train and support our adopters and we employ experienced and highly skilled social workers to ensure that every placement receives the dedicated support required to achieve the best possible outcome.

We understand that you are probably at the start of making one of the biggest decisions of your life, the decision to adopt a child. Here at TACT, we will be by your side every step of the way to provide the support and training you need throughout the adoption process.

TACT is more than an adoption agency – we are also a children’s charity and campaigning body. No matter what we do, our motivation is the same; building better lives for children and young people in care. This extends to you as well; we will work closely with you throughout your adoption journey and even after you have been approved as an adopter to ensure that you have all the support you want and need.

Who are the children needing adoption?

Children who need adopting come from a variety of backgrounds, but what they all have in common is they have had a difficult start in life and can no longer be brought up by their birth parents.

We encourage all potential adopters to contact us, but our biggest need is to find adoptive families for the following:

  • Children over 5 years old
  • Children with additional needs
  • Children in sibling groups
  • Children from black and mixed heritage backgrounds
  • Babies and young children on a fostering for adoption basis.
