Adoption outside of Peterborough
As part of our partnership with Peterborough City Council, our adoption service is only available in Peterborough and a 50 mile radius outside of Peterborough. We welcome applications from people living outside of Peterborough (within a 50-mile radius) but within reasonable travelling distance. Applicants will need to travel to Peterborough for training, meetings and introductions to the child.
Historically, TACT was a London based adoption agency and still has many adopters that we support in Kent and London. We continue to have staff located in London who support these adopters and are involved in assessing new adopters, so we would welcome applications from those areas. Applicants will need to travel to Peterborough for training, meetings and introductions to the child.
In April 2017, Peterborough City Council entered into an innovative and ground-breaking partnership with TACT, to develop a new permanency service that will improve the outcomes for the children and young people of Peterborough who are in care or on the edge of care.
TACT is the UK’s largest Fostering and Adoption Charity, with over 600 foster carers and adopters across England, Scotland and Wales. We’ve been helping to provide loving families for vulnerable children for 25 years.
Working in partnership with Peterborough City Council, our aim is to reduce the reliance on higher cost independent fostering and adoption placements and provide a significant cost saving to the new service. This will mean that money can be better invested into providing support to our children and young people in Peterborough and the people that care for them. 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.
