@TACTCare – #careinquiry TACT is involved as we feel we can make a difference and improve the care system to make it even better

 

@TACTCare – #careinquiry as a provider of fostering and adoption we see first-hand the good work of care but also what can be improved

 

@TheCareInquiry – Where does TACT believe the care system is falling down&where do you think it is doing well? #CareInquiry

 

@TACTCare – #careinquiry we know it makes a difference to many children’s lives but even more support to foster carers and adopters is needed

 

@TACTCare – #careinquiry we can learn from fostering to make adoption better and vice versa not see them as compartmentalised

 

@TheCareInquiry – So do you think that foster carers&adoptive parents need more support? #CareInquiry

 

@TACTCare – #careinquiry yes they are caring for traumatised children and need ongoing support throughout children’s childhoods and beyond

 

@TheCareInquiry – You work in fostering&adoption,do you believe there is currently a hierarchy for the best way to permanence? #CareInquiry

 

@TACTCare – #careinquiry children have different needs and require different types of support that is why the inquiry will look at what works

 

@TACTCare – #careinquiry when it works and for whom. all parts of the system can learn from each other to improve their practice

 

@TheCareInquiry – Can more be done to keep children with their birth parents before then enter the care system? #CareInquiry

 

@TACTCare – #careinquiry of course we should try to keep families together but we need to balance that with timely interventions for children

 

@TACTCare – #careinquiry if children do come into care we need to ensure constructive contact with family especially siblings but also wider

 

@TheCareInquiry – Do TACT believe that children are adequately consulted when decisions are made about their futures? #CareInquiry

 

@TACTCare – #careinquiry sadly not we need to engage with young people much more in a way that they really feel listened too

 

@TACTCare – #careinquiry we must also respond to what they are saying in a way good parents listen and respond

 

@TheCareInquiry – What would TACT like to see come from the #CareInquiry ?

 

@TACTCare – #careinquiry better practice using evidence of what we know works, a better voice for children, more support for carers

 

@TACTCare – #careinquiry academics, practitioners and policy makers working together to make care better plus better and longer aftercare
