Pact is all about providing services that enable people to live better lives. We understand that the most important thing for us to do well is to listen.
Our services are based on what our service users tell us will make a difference to their lives. We want to achieve outcomes that are meaningful to the people we serve. Sometimes however, we recognise that solutions are beyond our control - that what we are hearing from our service users is that there is a need for things to change at a systemic or policy. When this happens, we look for opportunities and solutions. In some cases, this means providing children, families or people with convictions with a platform from which their voices can be heard.
