Fostering in Cambridgeshire
Could you help children achieve their potential? Could you offer care, guidance and support to young people in Cambridgeshire? If the answer to both of these questions is ‘yes’, then fostering could be for you.
Children and young people in Cambridgeshire come into care for a number of different reasons. Sometimes they only require a care for a short period of time. Maybe a parent or guardian needs to go into hospital for a short time, and there is no one else to care for their children. Maybe there is conflict within the family home, and children need to be temporarily removed until that conflict is resolved. Other times, longer term care is required due to abuse or neglect. Unfortunately, this is the most common reason why children come into the care system. TACT are recruiting foster carers in Cambridgeshire to provide safe and caring homes for these young people.
Full and ongoing training will be provided, so you don’t need any previous childcare experience. This means that you could a fostering application in Cambridgeshire right away. To start the application process, you just need at least one spare bedroom in your home, a caring and nurturing character – and 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 Cambridgeshire Team!
Why foster in Cambridgeshire 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 Cambridgeshire, 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.
“The support we’ve received from TACT throughout our fostering journey has been outstanding. We’ve utilised the support of other foster carers and accessed support groups which have been incredibly helpful, while there is always someone from TACT at the other end of the phone whenever we have needed it.”
