Are childcare costs preventing you from training or working?

The PaCE project aims to help improve employment prospects for parents where childcare is their main barrier to accessing training or job opportunities. PaCE will cover the cost of childcare while parents undertake training, work experience or volunteering and gain the skills they need to get a job.

Parent Employment Advisers support parents by:
– providing 1 to 1 support in family friendly locations, supporting parents in their search for training and employment
– helping with ‘Better Off’ in work calculations
– providing employment advice and guidance, including self employment
– identifying childcare options / funding
– identifying training requirements
– getting parents closer to the workplace.
