This means that we have been able to invest unique projects like TACT Connect, our ground-breaking scheme for TACT care experienced young people and adults, our expanding TACT Education Service and our new Health Service.

It is not surprising that in October 2021 the Times 100 Best Companies Survey evidenced “outstanding” levels of engagement amongst our staff and that we are currently listed as 16th in the UK’s Best Mid-Sized Companies across all industries and the 4th Best Charity to work for in 2022.
