Transfer to TACT
There is a national shortage of foster carers and TACT are keen to take applications from potential foster carers at the start of their fostering career so that we can assist in the increase of available safe and caring foster homes in the UK.
We do however also understand that there are a number of reasons why foster carers may consider transferring from their local authority or agency. As such we are always happy to hear from experienced foster carers that are interested in transferring to TACT. We hope that our charity status encourages other foster carers to consider us when doing their research into available agencies in their area.
TACT CEO Andy Elvin published an opinion piece in The Guardian, which questions why fostering agencies are allowed to make profit out of caring for vulnerable children.
