Free legal support for PACEY members
Join PACEY and you can be sure of getting the legal advice you

Childminders and Nanny members have full access to Legal Plus.
Call for advice on any legal matter - business or personal - and

you legal advice about your issue and may be able to act on your

call our legal helpline. Again, offering help on any legal issue,

enabling you to talk through your concerns and offering possible
approaches to progress the situation. The helpline team can provide
legal guidance and support and, although they cannot act on your
behalf, they will focus on giving you the means to make an informed
decision about how to proceed.
