PACT Adopter Champions organise regular ImPACT Days for PACT adoptive families.

These events aim to provide an invaluable opportunity for adopted children and their families to get together and take part in some fun, engaging activities, such as team building projects and games, kid’s yoga, drama and art workshops and much more, all on a theme linked to adoption-related issues. There are also opportunities for parents to take part in mindfulness sessions and to chat to other adoptive families and our Adopter Champions over refreshments.

The ImPACT event held in London in September 2018 proved a real success, with lots of PACT families attending and having a great time.

One of the highlights of the day was an arts masterclass run by artist and integrative arts psychotherapist Helen Edwards.

Karen said: "It was great to see so many happy PACT families and meet the children. The day went from strength to strength with families working together to produce some fantastic pieces of art work around the theme of family. In addition, the children all made new friends and so did the parents too!"

One adopter said on the day: "Sometimes you feel like you're the only one but actually these events show you there are others in the same boat close by."

More ImPACT events are being planned - details will be added here.
