Support for adopters

PACT runs events designed to meet the needs of adoptive parents. We listen to your feedback and do our best to create events in response to the most common challenges adopters are facing. Please note that all support events are currently being held online.

Ask the Team on the Adopter Hub forum

We are running a new support service on the Hub during the current lockdown to allow us to answer your questions and provide support where possible.

Online Support Groups

A chance for adoptive parents to meet together virtually to talk through issues, ask questions and share knowledge and advice.

Coffee and chat

Parents who have had children placed with them in the last couple of years are invited to join our virtual Coffee and Chat breaks.

Partner Agency Events

We work closely with partners to give our adopters access to specialist events and workshops in addition to the training and support provided by PACT.


You can access further support and advice by getting in touch with our Adopter Champions or visiting the Adopter Hub. If you need the help of our therapeutically-trained social workers or you think your child may need therapy, take a look at our Strengthening Families Team and our Family and Children Therapeutic Support (FACTS) service.

We also run events for families, such as our annual Family Fun Days. You can find out more about our family support events here.
