As the UK’s largest fostering charity, TACT is pleased to be part of #CareDay22 – a worldwide celebration of the resilience and achievements of care experienced children, young people and adults.
TACT is very proud and supportive of its TACT care experienced community, and understand that there can be limited and inconsistent ongoing connection for young people when they leave care. This is one of the reasons why we created TACT Connect – a vibrant and ever growing community of care experienced young people and adults. TACT Connect is a membership scheme with a difference, because it is a community that is always growing and offering new experiences. The scheme is shaped by both members and TACT Connect Advisors, who co-create the entirety of what is on offer!
To mark Care Day we are extremely proud to present a reflective blog written by one of our talented TACT Connect members and Advisors, which has been inspired by the English Care Review. If you’d like to gain an understanding of what stigma feels like from a care experienced perspective, this is a must read!
