ADOPTION charity Parents And Children Together (PACT) is searching for a forever family for five-year-old twin girls.
The two girls, Katie and Emma*, are currently living with a foster carer but need a permanent adoptive home.
PACT is family-finding for the twins under the Its All About Me (IAAM) scheme which means the girls may receive specialist therapeutic support tailored to their needs, if it is identified as necessary.
The IAAM scheme encourages families to come forward and adopt children who may otherwise be overlooked because of their age, ethnic background, additional needs or because they are in a sibling group.
Families adopting under IAAM are given a range of interventions geared to supporting adoptive parents, including training in therapeutic parenting tailored to the specific needs of the child, and 24-hour support during the first two years after adoption to reduce the risk of placement breakdown.
Mandy Davies, PACT’s IAAM Manager said: “At PACT we are dedicated to finding families for children of all ages and backgrounds.
“We welcome couples and single people to come and find out about adoption and how they could change the lives of children like Emma and Katie.”
To hear an audio interview with Emma and Katie’s social worker and foster carer please visit www.pactcharity.org/iaam. To find out more about the girls, including seeing a recent video, please contact Mandy Davies on email – firstname.lastname@example.org.
PACT supports vulnerable families through outstanding adoption services, permanent fostering, award-winning therapeutic support and community projects in London and the south east.
PACT’s adoption services were judged as “outstanding” by Ofsted in January 2014 and its therapeutic services FACTS were voted “Voluntary Adoption Service of the Year” in the BAAF National Adoption Week Awards 2013.
