PACT About Us

Parents And Children Together - PACT - has been building and strengthening families since 1911.

PACT helps hundreds of families every year through outstanding adoption and award-winning therapeutic support and inspirational community projects across London and the south of England.

PACT is one of the UK’s leading independent adoption agencies, placing children with secure and loving families and supporting them with specialist therapeutic support. Our award-winning FACTS service includes counselling, Theraplay, creative art therapy and life story work which help children to overcome difficulties in childhood, adolescence and early adulthood which have resulted from early trauma and neglect.

PACT also runs community projects supporting vulnerable children and adults facing a range of issues including domestic abuse, homelessness and debt. Our current community projects include the Alana House women’s community programme, Bounce Back 4 Kids and the Recovery Toolkit programme. Our vision is to help even more families in these ways and to design and provide quality services where there is currently unmet need.

Back in 1911 PACT was the idea of the then Bishop of Oxford and was established as the social welfare arm of the Anglican Diocese of Oxford. PACT is now an independent charity with strong partnerships with many different sectors and faith organisations, statutory bodies, corporate organisations and charities, promoting an inclusive and supportive culture.
