Fostering in Tameside
There are many children and young people in Tameside who cannot be looked after by their own parents. There are lots of reasons for this. It could be that there is conflict within the family and the children need to be temporarily moved while this conflict is resolved. Other times it could be because of a family illness – but more often it is because of a degree of abuse or neglect. TACT are recruiting foster carers in Tameside to provide care and guidance to these children.
No previous experience or qualifications are required as you will receive full training. To start the application process, you just need at least one spare bedroom, a caring and nurturing character – and lots of energy to provide a child with a secure and loving home. If you think that you could make a positive impact on a child’s life, you could join our Tameside Fostering team!
TACT North West carer Karen, from Greater Manchester, discusses below why she chose to foster with TACT and what she loves about being a foster carer.
Why foster in Tameside 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 Tameside, 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, health 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 98% of our carers would recommend us to others thinking of fostering.
“We have had great support from TACT, and we know that whenever we pick up a phone, there will be someone who can help us.”
