Working Together to Support children who have experienced trauma and loss

Working Together to Support children who have experienced trauma and loss, including Looked After and Adopted Children
Children and young people who have experienced early life trauma can experience a range of challenges in their school or setting.
PAC-UK's Education Service offers a range of services to enable schools, parents and guardians and education and social care professionals to meet the needs of permanently placed children.
The Department for Education is increasingly recognising the long term impact of trauma and loss for children who live in adoptive or special guardianship families.  As part of their investment in supporting adoptive families, the DfE has awarded a grant to PAC-UK and Adoption UK to develop and implement strategies to improve the adoptive family’s school experience and therefore increase their academic and personal success.
