Fostering in Enfield
Foster carers play a vital role in caring for vulnerable children every day. If you have been thinking about fostering in Enfield, you could make a real difference to the lives of young people in your local area.
As a foster carer, you would be providing a safe, stable and nurturing home for vulnerable young people in your care. There is lots of flexibility when it comes to choosing the type of fostering you would like to provide. Above all else, fostering is so rewarding. Many of our foster carers have shared the most inspiring stories of how a young person has thrived in their care. TACT are currently recruiting foster carers in Enfield in order to provide nurturing care and guidance for vulnerable young people.
We are often asked if there are initial requirements in order to start the journey to becoming a foster carer. These requirements are:
- To have at least one spare bedroom
- To be aged 21 years or over
- To be a full time resident of the UK
Although no formal qualifications are required, some experience of caring for young people will be advantageous. Full and ongoing training will be provided for you. We are a charity, so we reinvest surplus income into providing more support and training for our fostering households.
You could join our Enfield Fostering team and change young people’s lives in your area.
TACT foster carers, The Wrights, talk about how proud they are of the young people they have cared for, and about the support they receive from TACT:
Why foster in Enfield with TACT?
TACT is the UK’s largest dedicated fostering charity. We have been providing nurturing and caring homes for vulnerable young people since 1993.
As a fostering charity, we work closely with Enfield Council to help provide caring homes for young people. We have a great team of foster carers in Enfield and the surrounding areas, who ensure that children receive the very best of care. Our reinvestment of surplus income into providing more training and support is a real asset to our carers, ensuring that they are fully supported and have the knowledge they need to make a difference.
We also 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 into adulthood.
This is why 98% of our carers would recommend us to others thinking of fostering.
“If you are thinking about becoming a foster carer then I recommend doing so with TACT, it is like working with extended family. The staff are very accessible, compassionate and child centred.”
