Face-To-Face Adoption Training


Please note: all scheduled face-to-face adoption training sessions will no longer take place for the foreseeable future, due to government advice on social distancing. Those already booked onto events will be contacted by a member of the PACT team.

We are working to move some of our events online and we will share details of these when we have them.


PACT offers a range of face-to-face adoption training for approved or prospective PACT adoptive families.

All adoption training is free to attend for PACT adopters and there is no limit on the number of courses that can be attended.

Training takes place in London, Reading and Brighton. To find out more about our current adoption training courses, click on the links below. If you would like to receive further information or attend any of these free courses run by PACT please email adoptiontraining@pactcharity.org or call 0300 456 4800.
