Events for adopted teens and young people
We’re running a series of events for adopted teenagers and young people. The events are a great way to get to know other adoptees in a relaxed and fun environment.
If you are an adopted teenager or young person, you have a unique perspective. We want to provide a supportive space for you to meet our team and connect with other young people who were adopted through PACT.
We are running regular events for different age groups. The sessions provide a space to socialise, either virtually or in person, as well as chatting about topics that are important to you and sharing your thoughts and feelings.

Young people who have attended the events before said:
Adoptee Voices is good actually because I know I’ve gone through some rough times and the Adoptee Voices [group] has helped me, given my mum advice and given me advice and stuff… It means that we can make friends with other people like us so that we can understand and care for [each other].
Attendee, aged 14
For me I joined a little bit later than everyone else but it’s been really effective for me because it’s allowed me to make new friends and talk about my experiences of being adopted… It has given me the confidence to be able to say to people it’s ok to feel differently about being adopted.
Attendee, aged 17
Before I started Adoptee Voices I felt like I was the only one who was adopted but now I feel more connected to other people who were adopted and that it’s OK to be adopted
Attendee, aged 13
The adoptee voices group is invaluable for my child although maybe he doesn’t realise that himself… I think it’s really important for him just to have that link with children who’ve got a bit of a shared experience… I think maybe as they’re getting older having somebody who you know they might know who has had similar experiences is also useful because they know they are not the only ones going through the same situation and troubles and actually for me coming and seeing the other parents and sort of knowing you’re not the only one going through some of the peaks and troughs of it all as well is quite good.
