Fostering in Wolverhampton
Imagine changing the lives of children local to you in Wolverhampton. By becoming a foster carer, you could be providing children and young people with caring and supportive homes. Most importantly, you could help them recover from any trauma they may have experienced. Although young people can come into care for short periods of time due to a family illness or a conflict within the family, the most common reason is abuse or neglect. TACT are recruiting foster carers in Wolverhampton in order to provide safe and caring homes for these vulnerable young people.
To begin your fostering journey, no previous childcare experience is necessary as full training will be provided. However, some experience of caring for children will be beneficial. What you will need is at least one spare bedroom in your home, and to be aged 21 or over. Additionally, some personal attributes such as a caring and nurturing character, patience and empathy will be essential as you will be caring for vulnerable young people. If this sounds like something that you could do, you could join our Wolverhampton 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 Wolverhampton 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.
We work closely with City of Wolverhampton Council in order to help find caring and nurturing homes in the local area. All our training and support is located in and around Wolverhampton, enabling our foster carers to make a real difference to children’s lives. Our reinvestment of surplus income has enabled us to be able to provide additional support over and above what is required of a fostering charity. These support resources include 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.
“The training process supplied by TACT is excellent. The support supplied by TACT is second to none; at no point throughout our fostering process did we feel like we were on our own.”
