We are a supportive and respectful place where people are genuinely passionate about delivering positive outcomes for children and their families. With our outstanding rating with Ofsted we work with a high degree of flexibility and innovation to remain at the forefront of adoption services for over 60 years.

The team will also support prospective adopters by phone as well as supporting the PACT adoption team at adoption information events.
The postholder will be part of PACT’s post adoption support team. They will manage the referrals into the Adopter Champion service and will be responsible for coaching and supporting the adopter champions to generate enquiries from prospective adopters and provide support to them.
The adopter champions are also responsible for the successful delivery of PACT’s ImPACT days programme, that provide an invaluable opportunity for adopted children and their families to get together and take part in some fun, engaging activities and to share experiences and make connections.
This is an exciting role supporting a priority area for PACT, and therefore requires someone who is passionate about finding more ‘forever families’ for children in care.
