PACEY's structure means that there are plenty of opportunities to get involved with the organisation at a local level.
Not only does this help PACEY deliver the services childcare professionals need and speak on their behalf, but it also supports local childcarers, helping them connect with others in their area.
PACEY Local helps childcare and early years professionals across England and Wales access peer support both face to face and online.
There are regular face to face group meetings across England and Wales where you can connect with other childcare professionals near you. And the online forums mean you can chat with other professionals who share your interests and concerns.
Many local areas have a Facilitator - a PACEY volunteer who coordinates local meetings and events, acting as a point of contact for the area.
One PACEY Local user said recently, "I am so glad I am able to liaise with other professionals outside my LA area as it gives a real insight into what is happening out there!".
Simply login to My PACEY and visit the PACEY Local forums to get started.
