Statement from Andy Elvin, TACT CEO:
“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 all surplus income is invested back into our services to ensure our carers and the children in our care receive the best possible service.
TACT has continued to undertake a wide range of innovative work across the UK, including the contract awarded to TACT by Peterborough City Council to run their fostering and adoption services. This is the first time this has happened in the UK, and is a testament to TACT’s great reputation and the commitment and skill of our foster carers and adopters.
Other recent projects undertaken by TACT include the Edge of Care project in Wales, a project caring for unaccompanied asylum seeking children in the South West and achieving permanence through care care in Scotland.
We work closely with fellow charities, central government and local authorities to improve the system for all looked after children. We work tirelessly to recruit, train and support our foster carers and we employ experienced and highly skilled social workers and children’s resource workers to ensure that every placement receives the dedicated support required to achieve the best possible outcome for the child in our care.”
