Fostering in Dudley
Could you make a difference to a child’s life? There are hundreds of children and young people in Dudley that desperately need safe and caring homes. You could make that difference by becoming a Dudley foster carer. Children come into care for lots of different reasons including family breakdowns or an illness. Sadly, the main reason is neglect or abuse. Sometimes it is both. TACT are recruiting foster carers in Dudley in order to provide these children with safe and caring homes.
No previous childcare or fostering experience is necessary to fostering in Dudley, 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 Dudley Fostering 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 Dudley 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 Dudley, 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.
“We’ve been incredibly supported by all in the TACT West Midlands team. Any issues or enquiries we’ve ever had, everyone is ready to help and there is always someone at the end of the phone 24 hours a day. “
