Our foster carers come from a wide range of backgrounds, cultures and ethnic groups. We believe the most important criteria for becoming a foster carer is your ability to listen and empathise and to provide a safe, stable and loving home for the children you care for.
To be able to start your journey with TACT, we do ask that you meet the following criteria:
Here at TACT we go above and beyond to provide a range of support services for our foster carers and the children they provide care for. Find out about our unique services and how they make a difference to young people’s lives.
Once you are approved as foster carer and begin caring for a young person, you will receive an allowance. The amount you receive will vary based on a number of factors, including the number of children, their age and the complexity of their needs.
We understand how important it is to you to foster with an organisation that is always there for you – you’ll be pleased to know that your local TACT is never far away from where you are and that’s because we want to be there for you whenever you need us. We offer you support and guidance whenever you need it, 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.
