You may have been thinking about becoming a foster carer for some time, or it might be something that you have recently decided to investigate. 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 help our foster carers to grow and develop to become the best possible carer they can be by offering a range of training and support. We are here to support you 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. Start your foster carer journey and make a difference to children’s lives.
Take a look at each stage of the journey, from initial enquiry to approved foster carer, and watch our carers talk about their own experiences of the application and assessment process. We’ll be with you every step of the way to answer any questions or concerns you may have!
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.
