How do you quantify the sense of emotional relief a child feels when the complex legal journey facing them is demystified in a way they can understand? Or put a value on the reassurance a child feels when their trusted PACT Support Person sits by their side as they watch their original statement to police, or is right there alongside them in court for moral support?
Can you imagine the long-term impact on a child when stress evolves into anxiety, aggression, withdrawal, anger, depression, sleeplessness and nightmares? What if these effects could be replaced by feelings of being cared for, listened to, less burdened, less alone, and important enough to have their very own PACT Support Person by their side?
