‘Being Dad’: support evenings for adoptive fathers

We are running a series of online support groups for PACT adoptive fathers. The groups will offer dads or dads-to-be a chance to meet together virtually to talk through issues, ask questions and share support, encouragement and advice.

The group will meet in person in Reading. There will also be a link provided if you would prefer to attend virtually via Microsoft Teams (full details will be sent after booking).

To book, please complete the form at the bottom of this page or email adoptionsupport@pactcharity.org.

Please note: these sessions are only available to approved PACT adopters (with or without children placed), and those in Stage 2 of the adoption assessment process with PACT who have completed a DBS check.
