The Adopter Hub
The Adopter Hub is dedicated to providing online support, learning opportunities and information for both adopters and professionals working with adoptive families.
The Adopter Hub is provided by PACT, which is rated “Outstanding” by Ofsted and has been building and strengthening families since 1911. As a result of our many years of experience supporting adopters, we understand how important it is to ensure adopters get the right support at a time that works for them.
This website has been developed as a result of listening to adopters and working with them to develop accessible tools to empower adopters to access the support they need.
Our trained Adopter Peer Supporters are “experts by experience” and able to provide a listening ear through our one-to-one live webchat service. Sometimes hearing from someone who has experienced a similar situation to us is all we need to help guide us through.
We have also worked with various specialists to inform and develop other elements of the online support offering and are confident that adopters will be empowered to access support through our dedicated online platform.
The universal suite of support tools includes:
- One-to-one live webchat - online peer support
- Our specially developed Introduction to Attachment 12 module eLearning course
- A programme of webinars with topics selected by adopters
- Ask the Expert - opportunity to live chat with an expert and ask anything you want to know
- Information and resources
The suite of tools also includes a safe and secure online adopter forum accessible only to adopters.
