PACT supports vulnerable children and families through:

  • Bounce Back 4 Kids (BB4K) - an innovative programme developed by PACT which supports children and their non-perpetrating parents who have experienced domestic abuse.
  • Outstanding (Ofsted 2014 & 2017) adoption and adoption support services. Since 2011, PACT has placed over 500 children-in-care with loving forever families.
