Nearly 100 children will be spending Christmas with their new forever family this year thanks to Parents And Children Together (PACT).


PACT placed 98 children with 81 PACT families in 2014 through its adoption, intercountry adoption and permanent fostering services.

PACT’s Director of Adoption and Fostering Shirley Elliott said: “I am very pleased and proud to be able to say that PACT has placed 98 children with their forever families this year.

“In 2013/2014 a record number of children were placed for adoption (over 5,000 nationally) leaving behind a history of abuse and neglect.

“There are many more children with difficult backgrounds still waiting for stable loving homes and I know that everyone at PACT will continue to work very hard to make a real difference to these children’s lives.

“We look forward to making many more forever families in 2015.”

PACT supports families across the London and the south including Brighton & Hove through adoption, fostering, award-winning therapeutic services and community projects and has office in London, Reading, Oxford and Brighton.

In September PACT opened a new office in Brighton and launched a campaign to encourage people from the LGBT community to adopt.

Chief executive Jan Fishwick said: “All children deserve to be loved and nurtured in a safe and secure home, and we are especially mindful of those children still waiting to be adopted or found long term foster homes. 

“We hope to find permanent, loving families for many more priority children in 2015, including children who are older, with additional needs or those in sibling groups.”
