Fostering in Peterborough
If changing a child’s life is something you have been thinking about for a while, then fostering could be the right path for you.
Hundreds of children and young people in Peterborough come into care each week, for a variety of reasons. Sometimes a child requires short-term care due to a temporary conflict at home, or a family illness. Other times, long-term care is required due to instances of abuse or neglect. You can choose what kind of fostering you would like to do, to fit your household, circumstances and experience. TACT are currently recruiting foster carers in Peterborough to make a difference to children’s lives.
It may surprise you to learn that you don’t need any previous childcare experience at all, as full and ongoing training will be provided. This means that you could start your fostering journey in Peterborough 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 Peterborough Team!
Why foster in Peterborough 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 Peterborough, 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.
“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.”
