Pact was founded in 1952 as an independent Irish charity providing a range of adoption services to Irish families. Today we are a non denominational accredited adoption agency under Section 4 (e,f, & g) of the Adoption Act, 2010. We provide information, advice and counselling concerning adoption to any prospective adopters, and we assess and prepare reports on eligibility and suitability for adoption.
After adoption we provide post placement reports for the country of origin. We also provide an information and advice and support service for both domestic and intercountry adopters. Pact maintains a small panel of pre-adoption foster carers who care for babies who require short term care.
