Support for you
You're busy looking after children and families in your setting, and may well be caring for a family at home as well. But who's looking after you?
Advice and support helplines
Our helplines mean that practical help is just a phonecall away.
- When you call our childcare helpline, trained professionals will answer your questions about childcare issues or simply give you a second opinion on something you’re not sure about.
- Whether it's a question about a parking ticket, property law or a business issue, one call to our legal helpline is the start of getting your legal worries sorted out. Legal Plus is exclusively for our childminder members.
Representing you to regulators and government
PACEY members are part of a vibrant and dedicated community of childcare professionals.
PACEY is a strong voice for those childcare professionals, working with government and regulators at all levels to help influence childcare policy development and to speak for childcare and early years professionals across England and Wales.
We represent you directly to government, by speaking at Select Committee inquiries and having face-to-face meetings with Ministers.
And members have opportunities to take part in these meetings too, with visits by Ministers and regulatory body officials in settings to really demonstrate the range and vibrancy of childcare professionals.
