We are extremely proud that TACT has been recognised for the sixth year as one of The Sunday Times 100 Best Not-For-Profit Organisations to Work For.
The award is based on the response of TACT employees to a confidential questionnaire on eight areas including how good the organisation’s leadership is, what they think of the organisation, opportunities for personal growth, relationships, pay and benefits and general well-being.
Operating across England, Scotland and Wales, TACT’s core remit is to provide high-quality, child-centred fostering and adoption services. The charity also campaigns on behalf of children in care, carers and families. The outcome of the Sunday Times award revealed that TACT staff say work is never boring and is an important part of their lives. They also don’t feel tempted to take up a post elsewhere.
Andy Elvin, TACT CEO said: ”TACT truly values its employees and I feel that The Sunday Times Award is testament to the high level of engagement we have with our staff, which results in the hard work, commitment and dedication that they show towards the organisation, the children we care for and to our wonderful adopters and foster carers. How we support and communicate with each other reflects the values that underpin our foster and adoptive homes”
Andy added: ”The high quality training, support and attention to well-being that our staff receive is matched by the way in which TACT treats and values our foster carers. We understand how important it is to support, train and develop them to provide best possible care for our children and young people. We are very proud of our retention rates for staff and foster carers and this is reflected in the stability we achieve for our children”
This year is a particularly exciting one for TACT as it will be taking over the running of Peterborough City Council’s fostering and adoption services, the first time a Charity has struck up such a partnership with a local authority.
