Fostering in Bournemouth
Many children and young people in Bournemouth require urgent care and guidance, because they are unable to stay with their own families. Some reasons for this are internal family conflicts, or an illness that means their parents or guardians are unable to care for them because they need to stay in hospital for a while. Sadly, the main cause of children coming into care is because of neglect or abuse. TACT are recruiting foster carers in Bournemouth to provide safe and caring homes to these children.
You don’t need any previous experience to start fostering in Bournemouth, 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 Bournemouth Fostering Team!
Why foster in Bournemouth 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 the area, we work with Bournemouth Borough Council in order to find expertly-matched foster homes. Therefore, fostering with TACT will mean caring for children and young people in your local area. Our reinvestment of surplus income enables us to provide additional support over and above what is expected of a fostering charity. For example, we provide 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. We also ensure that our care-experienced young people receive support for life, via our TACT Connect service.
This is why 98% of our carers would recommend us to others thinking of fostering.
“TACT could see my potential as a foster carer and welcomed my application. I have had very good support from TACT – I know that if I need to get in contact at any time the support is there.”
