Children with Disabilities

Providing foster care to children and young people with disabilities is something that we specialise in here at TACT. As a disability carer, you’ll be offering specialist care to children with complex needs which can include physical disabilities, medical conditions or learning difficulties. Caring for a child with a disability can be hugely rewarding as you give the child the opportunity to reach their full potential.

Becoming a disability foster carer can seem quite daunting, but don’t worry, we’ll provide you with all the training and guidance to ensure that together we can give the child the support they need to thrive.

For carers in Peterborough, TACT offer a service called the ‘Family Link Scheme’. This is a service whereby specialist carers are assessed and approved to offer short break care to children with disabilities and / or significant and complex needs.
