Children’s activities and events

PACT runs fun, therapeutic activity sessions for adopted children and their parents.

We have an exciting programme of activities including singing, drama, baking, craft and story time, with each session tailored to the specific age group of the children. Some events are taking place online over Zoom to allow families to join from any location, and we also run some in-person activities with the opportunity for parents and children to meet other adoptive families face-to-face.

As well as having fun and learning some new skills, these activity sessions are a great way for children to meet others who are also adopted.

Come and join us!

Meet our activity leaders

Dan is an actor, singer and musician in Hampshire. He has performed professionally in a range of film and theatre productions and is the LAMDA drama coach in a children’s performing arts company. Dan is also studying Applied and Contemporary Theatre at the Guildford School of Performing Arts. Dan grew up with an adopted brother so he understands all about adoption. He leads PACT’s children’s activities online and in Reading and will be expanding our range of activities for families in East and West Sussex.

Michelle is PACT’s new children’s worker in north west London. She is an occupational therapist’s assistant and regularly works with children with EHCPs and learning challenges.
