Church Christmas fundraising

PACT has been supporting children and families in need since its creation by the Diocese of Oxford in 1911, and this year we are preparing to help our service users facing the cost of living crisis.  We have seen the need for our trauma recovery programmes grow during the pandemic so your support is needed more than ever.  Our adoption support programme, Bounce Back 4 Kids and Alana House rely on fundraising and the generosity of churches and congregations like yours.

This Christmas please consider supporting PACT and the work we do changing lives in our communities.

£600 could pay for 12 one-to-one support sessions at Alana House for a vulnerable woman with complex needs.

£960 could pay for a child and their parent who has witnessed or been affected by domestic abuse to attend a 10-week BB4K children’s course to help them manage their feelings and ultimately break the cycle of domestic abuse.
