Fostering in Croydon
In Croydon, many children and young people need urgent care because they cannot be looked after by their own families. There are many reasons for this, such as internal conflicts between family members or an illness that prevents a parent from properly caring for their children. Unfortunately, it could also be because of abuse or neglect. TACT are recruiting foster carers in Croydon to provide a safe and caring home to these children. We work closely with Croydon social services to ensure that children are matched to our team of foster carers.
You don’t need any previous experience to start fostering in Croydon, 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 foster carer team and start fostering in Croydon!
Why foster in Croydon 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 Croydon, 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 and an online foster carer portal. We are even currently developing our own specialist health service.
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 96% of our carers would recommend us to others thinking of fostering.
“After much research we decided to apply to foster through TACT based on the level of support it provided, its community feel and charitable status. We like that TACT’s focus is exclusively on the children and their carers.”
