Fostering in The Wirral
Many children and young people in The Wirral cannot be looked after by their own family. There are many reasons for this. It could be because of illness or conflicts within the family – but it could also be because they have experienced some form of neglect. TACT are recruiting foster carers in The Wirral to provide a caring and loving home to these children.
You may have been thinking about fostering in The Wirral for a while. Maybe you have questions about your eligibility to foster? It may surprise you to learn that the initial criteria for becoming a foster parent is to have at least one spare bedroom, a nurturing and caring disposition, and energy to provide a child with a secure and supportive home. We are here to answer any questions you have about become a foster carer. You could join our Fostering Wirral team, and start making a difference to children’s lives in your local community!
Why foster in The Wirral 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 The Wirral area, we provide our foster carers with support and training that is local and accessible – to enable them to make a difference to children’s lives. By reinvesting 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’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.
“I have gained so much training and experience at TACT and am able to put these tools into practice in my role as a foster carer to give young people a better life. My advice to people who are thinking about becoming foster carers is to do it! It’s such hard work but with the right training and support you could make a difference to these children’s lives.”
