ADOPTION charity Parents And Children Together (PACT) is now opening its enquiries line during evenings and at the weekend to make it easier for anyone interested in adoption to get in touch.
PACT’s enquiries line 0300 456 4800 is now open 10am-5pm on Monday, Wednesday and Friday, 10am-8pm on Tuesday and Thursday, and 10am-1pm on Saturday.
PACT, which offers outstanding Ofsted-rated adoption services to families across the South East, is one of the leading independent adoption charities in the country. Last year the charity helped transform the lives of 93 children by finding them adoptive families.
With more than 2,000 children waiting to be adopted, PACT specialises in finding secure and loving homes for children in care, including those who often face the longest wait for their forever family.
PACT adopters can be couples or single people, of all ages, ethnicities and backgrounds.
PACT’s Chief Executive Jan Fishwick OBE said: “We understand that making the decision to adopt is huge, and we really want to make it as easy as possible for people to take the first step to find out more. We hope that having our enquiry lines open longer, in the evenings and at weekends, when people might find it easier or have a bit more time to pick up the phone, will encourage more people to get in touch.”
Lorna Hunt, Head of Adoption at PACT, added: “We have a fantastic enquiries team who are friendly and approachable, and are very happy to answer any questions you may have, talk you through the process and book you onto one of our adoption information events where you can find out more.
“If you are at all interested in starting or extending your family through adoption please do pick up the phone to help find out if this is right for you and, if so, how we can help you to do this.”
