Online Support Groups

We are running a series of online support groups for parents of PACT adopted children via Zoom. The groups will offer parents a chance to meet together virtually to talk through issues, ask questions and share knowledge and advice.

Each session will be about a different topic as listed below and will be facilitated by PACT’s Adoption Support Team which includes therapeutic practitioners of the Strengthening Families Team, experienced Adopter Champions and the specialist PACT Education Lead.
