Legal support

Our legal support services can offer you specialist advice about professional employment or business management issues, as well as answer questions about personal matters such as property, parking fines, your Will, or even family law.

PACEY legal assurance advice line

Our legal assurance advice line offers legal support to PACEY childminder, nanny and nursery worker members.

If you are dealing with a legal issue relating to a client, our qualified lawyers can take up your case and act on your behalf, including taking the case to the small claims court if necessary. This service is included in your PACEY membership.

Please note, there must be reasonable prospects (51% or greater) of successfully pursuing a claim which in the case of a contractual dispute means taking into consideration any counter claim or argument by the parent or guardian. Members can read the full FAQs here.
