TACT (The Adolescent and Children’s Trust) is the UK’s largest dedicated fostering charity. The history of TACT can be traced back to its inception in 1993. We currently have over 500 foster carers providing loving homes for over 600 children and young people.
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 carers and the children in our care receive the best possible support. We also regularly campaign on behalf of vulnerable children, seeking to influence public policy and argue for positive changes. We believe that this is how fostering in the UK should be.

We have staff based across England, Wales and Scotland who are dedicated to ensuring that as a TACT foster carer you receive the support you need, whenever you need it, regardless of where you are in the country.
