Reinvesting to Change Lives
TACT Fostering has come a long way since it was established as a charity back in 1993 by a group of local authority service managers, who had expressed concerns that rapid changes within the care system were resulting in a lack of adequate foster care.
To this day, TACT has remained the UK’s largest dedicated fostering charity, covering wide areas of the UK. As a charity, reinvesting surplus income back into providing more training and support for their foster carers has always been at the core of TACT’s approach to foster care. But the charity’s CEO, Andy Elvin, felt that more could be done to support TACT’s young people – and it is this focus on the wellbeing of children that has lead to some innovative new services and approaches.
