Fostering in West Midlands

There are many children in the West Midlands who cannot be looked after their own family. This could be because of illness or family breakdowns or because they have experienced some form of neglect. TACT are actively looking for foster carers across the West Midlands to provide care and support to these children. If you have a spare bedroom, a caring nature and energy to provide a child with a happy home, we believe you could become an amazing foster carer!

We particularly want to hear from prospective carers in Birmingham, Coventry, Dudley, Herefordshire, Sandwell, Shropshire, Solihull, Staffordshire, Stoke On Trent, Telford & Wrekin, Walsall, Warwickshire, Wolverhampton and Worcestershire.

We would ideally like to hear from people who would like to care for children aged five years and over, sibling groups or children with complex needs.

As an independent fostering agency, TACT have worked in partnership with all West Midlands Local Authorities since 2007 and have maintained excellent positioning on tiers which has secured a regular supply of referrals for placements for all ages. As one of a small number of charities working in the West Midlands, TACT offers Local Authorities the security of knowing that we do not make profit from children’s services.

Why foster with TACT?

At TACT we are more than just a fostering agency, as a charity we put children at the heart of everything that we do and all of our surplus income goes back into services for our carers and the children that they look after.

Foster carers come to us for many reasons, they stay with us – because we help them do the most rewarding job in the world. Together we transform the lives of children and young people, giving them the chance to lead happy, loving, fulfilled lives.
