Parents Childcare and Employment (PaCE) - Monmouthshire - Family support services

What we do

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. PaCE is a project jointly funded by Welsh Government and the European Social Fund (ESF). 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.

Who do we support

PaCE advisers support parents who wish to engage with the project on a voluntary basis, and work towards realistic and achievable goals. They help to improve skills, tackle low confidence/self esteem, and move parents closer to sustainable employment.

Who can PaCE help?:
- Parents aged 25 and over not in employment.
- Young parents (16-24) not in Employment, Education or Training (NEET).
