What we do
We are a well-established charity based in the Thames Valley with an office in Reading and second office in London. Our beneficiaries make up the wider PACT family and are supported through several community projects for children and adults facing multiple disadvantages including domestic abuse, homelessness, debt and victims or perpetrators of crime. Our current community projects include the Alana House women’s community programme and Bounce Back 4 Kids, a therapeutic domestic abuse recovery programme for families.
PACT is also a leading independent adoption charity in the UK, placing children with secure and loving families and supporting them with specialist therapeutic support. Our most recent Ofsted inspection rated our adoption service as “Outstanding”.
PACT is a supportive and respectful place where people are passionate about making a positive difference to the lives of women, children and families from many different backgrounds. We continuously look to progress the ways in which we create families and bring people together and encourage applications from people across all communities. We are committed to ensuring that our people and our services reflect the diversity of the communities we serve and applications from people from under-represented groups are particularly welcomed.
PACT is committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children, young people and vulnerable adults. Anyone joining our team is subject to PACT’s Safer Recruitment pre-appointment enquiries. These include the provision of documentation of the right to work in the UK, Disclosure Barring Service (DBS) check, overseas police check where applicable and references covering a minimum 5 year period.
