Parents And Children Together (PACT) helps hundreds of families every year through outstanding adoption services, award-winning therapeutic support and inspirational community projects.

As one of the leading independent adoption charities in the country, PACT specialises in finding secure and loving homes for priority children who can be harder to place and often face the longest wait for their forever family. These include children over four years old, in sibling groups of two or three, of BME heritage or with additional needs.

PACT welcomes adopters from all backgrounds, including those of black and minority ethnic heritage and from the lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender community. It offers life-long support to its adoptive families through its Strengthening Families Team and Family and Child Therapeutic Support service (FACTS).

PACT also runs two community projects Alana House – an award-winning community service for vulnerable women – and Bounce Back 4 Kids (BB4K) which supports children affected by domestic abuse.

PACT was established in 1911 by the then Bishop of Oxford as the social welfare arm of the Anglican Diocese of Oxford. Today PACT continues to be supported by the Diocese.
