Fostering in Birmingham
Children and young people in Birmingham come into care for lots of different reasons. It could be due to family breakdowns, or an illness. However, the main reason why young people enter the care system is because of some form of neglect or even abuse. TACT are recruiting foster carers in Birmingham in order to provide these young people with care and guidance – to help them recover from any previous trauma they may have experienced.
To become a foster carer in Birmingham, you don’t need any previous experience or qualifications as full training will be provided. To start the application process, you just need at least one spare bedroom in your home, a caring and nurturing character – and lots of energy to provide a child with a secure and loving home. If this sounds like something that you could do, you could join our Fostering Birmingham Team!
Watch Samantha, one of our West Midlands foster carers, talk about what it is like to be a TACT foster carer:
Why foster in Birmingham with TACT?
TACT is the UK’s largest dedicated fostering charity – enabling us to provide care for children on a national level. We reinvest any surplus income into providing more support and training for foster carers interested in fostering.
As one of the leading fostering agencies in Birmingham, we provide our foster carers with training and support that is local to them – to enable them to change young people’s lives. Because we reinvest surplus income, we can provide additional support over and above what is required of a fostering charity, such as a dedicated education service, health service and an online foster carer portal.
We’re more than just a fostering agency – we go above and beyond to look after our foster carers and the children they provide care for. Our TACT Connect service ensures that when children leave the care system, they have TACT’s support for life.
This is why 98% of our carers would recommend us to others thinking of fostering.
“TACT were recommended to us by family members who were also carers and came with extremely positive reviews. We’ve felt supported throughout our journey by TACT staff who provide us with excellent support. We’d 100% recommend TACT.”
