TACT carer Debbie discussed her decision to start fostering in the Guardian’s article: “Life after a great leap: lessons from people who dropped everything in search of happiness”.

Even so, taking them in was the best change I ever made. When I think back, I’m struck by how nervous and vulnerable they were when they arrived, and how their confidence soared.”

“Caring for refugee children gave me an appreciation of the things we take for granted – family, love, a nice home. Being able to make a difference in their lives has been humbling.”
