Join CATCH as an:


"A valuable resource, the webinars are brilliant and so accessible and easy to book onto. I have increased my knowledge base in so many areas." - Practitioner


“One of the best things about CATCH is to hear information from other adoptive parents, parenting an adoptive child is so different to average parenting and if you haven’t adopted it’s hard to understand its difficulties.“ - Adopter


“I find the resources relevant and useful in my work with pupils with an Education, Health and Care Plan (EHCP)” - Education professional


“I have found it almost addictive. It is easy to navigate and I have learnt so much on so many different subjects. I have gotten a lot from a webinar this morning…it is a great tool and I highly recommend it.” - Foster carer


“You are awesome! As a practitioner I feel supported by your resources and that I can always offer adopters additional insight into particular topics through your site. It helps me to empower adopters to learn for themselves so they don’t become reliant on me to find solutions. What would we do without you?” - Practitioner


“It’s been a brilliant resource. I’ve learnt so much about a variety of topics and the webinars have been excellent with such well-presented content. It’s really useful to be able to dip into it whenever I have a spare moment with its flexibility. There is little in the way of help and support for special guardians so this is really useful to have.” - Special guardian

We are part of a wider community

CATCH (formerly The Adopter Hub) is provided by Parents And Children Together (PACT), an adoption charity and family support provider. PACT is rated as outstanding by Ofsted and has been building and strengthening families since 1911. All PACT adoptive families have free access to the Hub once they begin the process to become approved adopters. Other adoption agencies and local authorities have partnered with us to provide the Hub for their own adopters, special guardians, schools and staff.

A subscription to CATCH does not include access to other PACT services.
