Fostering in Solihull
Each week, hundreds of children and young people in Solihull come into care, for a number of different reasons. It could be because of a long term illness, or conflicts within the family. Sadly, the most common reason why children come into care is because of neglect, abuse – or even both. TACT are recruiting foster carers in Solihull in order to provide these children with safe and caring homes.
No previous childcare experience is necessary to start your fostering journey in Solihull, 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 Solihull 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 Solihull 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.
TACT work directly with Solihull Metropolitan Borough Council in order to provide well-matched foster homes for children and young people. Therefore, by joining our Solihull Team of foster carers, you will be making a real difference in your local area. As a fostering charity, we reinvest surplus income to provide additional support over and above what is required. Our dedicated education service, health service and online foster carer portal provide our carers with additional care and resources.
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 98% of our carers would recommend us to others thinking of fostering.
“The support and training I have received from TACT is amazing. TACT is managed really well, and our social worker is fantastic.”
