Fostering in Portsmouth
If you live in Portsmouth, you could change the lives of children and young people by becoming a foster carer. Children come into care for lots of different reasons, such as internal family conflicts and long term illness. Unfortunately, the most common reason is neglect or abuse. TACT are recruiting foster carers in Portsmouth to provide caring and safe homes to these children, to enable them to recover from what might have been a traumatic time for them.
One of the myths surrounding fostering is that you need lots of childcare experience. This is not the case, and we provide both full and ongoing training to our Fostering Portsmouth Team! 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 Fostering Portsmouth Team!
Why foster in Portsmouth 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 Portsmouth, 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.”
