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. If you would like to attend an information event, please contact PACT’s Enquiries team by calling 0300 456 4800 where they will be able to assist you with your query. Lines are open 10am-3pm Monday to Friday.

If you plan to come to one of our drop in sessions, there is no need to book and you will see the next session below. 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.  Please contact PACT’s enquiries team on 0300 456 4800 (lines are open 10am-3pm Monday to Friday). You can also email enquiries@pactcharity.org (please note a one-to-one is only available at drop in sessions).

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

For any queries about events please contact PACT’s Enquiries team by calling 0300 456 4800 where they will be able to assist you with your query. Lines are open 10am-3pm Monday to Friday.
