Fostering in the North West

Welcome to TACT North West

Sadly, there are over 15,000 children in the North West who cannot be looked after by their own family. We are urgently recruiting more foster carers in the North West who can provide care and support to some of the UK’s most vulnerable children and young people. You could join our Fostering North West team!

We are recruiting foster carers all across the North West, particularly in Liverpool, St Helens, Wirral, Manchester, Oldham, Rochdale, Stockport and Tameside.


We Are Here To Support You

When you choose to foster with TACT North West, you will be choosing to join an incredible team of foster carers and staff.

Within our team in the North West, you will have access to your own Supervising Social Worker who will have monthly supervision with you, weekly support calls and will also be available for any additional support you require.

We pride ourselves on having developed an excellent model of therapeutic and trauma-informed care. We have our very own Therapeutic Social Worker who provides bespoke support to provide foster carers and children to understand and response to past trauma and emotional health needs.

We also have a fantastic team of Engagement and Activity Practitioners in the North West. Our Engagement and Activity Practitioners do incredible work with the young people who live with our foster carers in many different ways. The support from the Engagement and Activity Practitioners is tailored to suit each and every child’s individual needs. For some children it may be a fun day out at a trampoline park, and for others it may be support overcoming an issue they have been experiencing.
