NEW: PACT changes name to Action Against Abduction

On 15 December 2015 we changed the name of our charity from PACT (Parents and Abducted Children Together) to Action Against Abduction. The new name more closely reflects the work we do. Our campaigning and research have evolved over the years and as we approach our next major projects, we want to continue to build a strong support base under the right name.

Find us online and on social media using the hashtag #EndAbductionNow
