Who do you call in a time of crisis?
A loved one? A friend? What if there is no one you can call?
What if you need advice or support from a specialist?
For the families who have adopted through PACT whose children may have suffered abuse, neglect or loss in their early lives, the women who come to Alana House seeking support at difficult times in their lives, and the parents and children healing from the trauma of domestic abuse, we are there in times of crisis. Our team of therapeutically trained social workers and expert support workers are at the end of a phone to listen and to support.
A donation of just £5 will help us to be there for children, women and families when they need us the most.

Julie* had fled from her abusive partner and was living in a new town with her six-year-old son Harry*. Harry was struggling to settle into his new school; he was withdrawn and unable to engage with his teachers and classmates. At home he would have bouts of aggression towards his mother.
Julie didn’t know where to seek help but heard about PACT’s Bounce Back 4 Kids service through a domestic abuse organisation. She was referred to BB4K and Harry attended a 10-week group where he learned how to deal with what he had witnessed, how to express his feelings and how to build healthy relationships. Julie attended the parents course to understand the abuse through Harry’s eyes, to support her parenting role and to help her support Harry’s recovery from the trauma he had experienced.
PACT was there for Julie in her time of crisis
