More news, no ads


This figure increases to 98 for adopted or fostered children who spent their first festive season with new families in London and the South of England, according to Parents And Children Together (PACT).
One of the new Berkshire parents, who asked not to be named, said: “I remember back to my first tentative phone call with PACT – from this moment onwards the staff have been positive and confident and passionate in their work, advice and support.
“We have been treated with respect and given the time and resources needed to succeed in the adventure. We feel reassured that we will have the qualified staff support too in the future should we ever need it.”
PACT 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..”
