Information for social workers

Social workers play a vital role in supporting families under pressure. We've got information and resources designed to help social workers to advise the families they work with. These resources will help social workers to make families aware of: 

  • the different childcare options available to them
  • the government funding they may be eligible for, and how to apply for this
  • the benefits that accessing high quality childcare can bring for their child, and for the wider family.

Please note that this information is for social workers in England. For information about how PACEY can support social workers in Wales, please contact the Wales office on 02920351407 or email
