Information Events

PACT runs information events and drop in sessions for couples or individuals interested in adoption.

Information events are led by a PACT social worker and will include a talk from someone who has adopted through PACT. You may want to  download a PACT guide to adoption before attending. Booking is essential for these events, and full information about the location will be given when you book. 

Drop in sessions give you the opportunity to talk informally to one of PACT's Adopter Champions and the PACT adoption staff on hand to answer any questions. You'll be able to read helpful and applicable literature and watch PACT’s adoption videos. You'll also be able to find out more about PACT families that have adopted themselves. If there are a number of issues you would like to discuss you may want to book a one-to-one slot with a PACT social worker. 

Our Q&A events give the opportunity to ask questions about adoption to a diverse panel of adopters over light refreshments. You will also be able to find out more about the adoption process. 

These events are free to attend but you will need to book in advance by contacting our enquiries team on 0300 456 4800 or emailing  enquiries@pactcharity.org. Lines are open 10am-3pm Monday to Friday.

We are also holding our first ever Virtual Adoption Information Event on Wednesday 28th November at 12.30pm live on our Facebook page

Upcoming events:

* Please note our London information events are not held at our London office but at a venue nearby - full details will be provided when you book a place.
