PACT's work during lockdown
PACT is committed to continuing its support for children, families and women throughout the current coronavirus pandemic. During these challenging and uncertain times, the vulnerable people we support through our adoption services and community projects need us more than ever.
In April 2020 we launched a COVID-19 crisis appeal to raise money for our community projects and, through the generosity and compassion of our supporters, we raised a fantastic £4,256.14 (including Gift Aid) to help us reach those most affected by isolation, social distancing and the lack of face-to-face support currently available. To all those who supported our appeal and allowed us to reach children, women and families in need: thank you!
This video from January 2021 contains a message of thanks from Jan Fishwick OBE, CEO of PACT, to all our families, supporters, staff, service users and volunteers.
