Why Choose to Foster?

Choosing to become a foster carer is one of the most amazing things you will ever do. You will have the opportunity to support a vulnerable young person through a time in their life when it is most needed. If you have a spare bedroom and the passion to help change a young person’s life, then we can’t wait to hear from you.

Can I Foster?

Our foster carers come from a wide range of backgrounds, cultures and ethnic groups. We believe the most important criteria for becoming a foster carer is your ability to listen and empathise and to provide a safe, stable and loving home for the children you care for.

To be able to start your fostering journey with TACT, you need to meet the following criteria:

  • You must be over 21 years old
  • You must have a spare bedroom
  • You must have the time to dedicate to fostering
