Welcome to TACT
TACT (The Adolescent and Children’s Trust) is the UK’s largest charity and voluntary agency providing fostering and adoption services.
Our core work involves providing high quality and well supported fostering or adoptive families for children and young people in the care of local authorities. Working in partnership with local authorities from our offices across England, Wales and Scotland, we are dedicated to providing creative, effective and outcome-focused services. We also campaign on behalf of children and young people in care, carers and adoptive families.
A general election provides a good opportunity to set out what we believe should be the priorities for the incoming government - TACT's 'Call to Action' identifies seven key areas for change.
If UKIP want to be taken seriously offensive comments can't be overlooked - Farage needs to make clear UKIP's position on care.
TACT (The Adolescent and Children’s Trust) today welcomed the announcement from the Office for National Statistics (ONS), that the number of adoptions made in the UK in 2012 had risen by nearly ten per cent. This follows an increase in 2011 of six per cent.
A report published last week by the Children’s Society highlights the disturbing impact changes to emergency support are having on vulnerable families and young people.
An article in the Staffordshire Sentinel gives a very telling impression of the way we increasingly seem to be looking at children in care. Gareth Grossman, Director of Policy at TACT, responds here.
