Parent/Carer Support


Parent and Carers Advisors


Parent and Carer Advisors (PACA), is a participation and support group for parents and carers whose children or young people access services in Surrey. These services include, Special Educational Needs & Disabilities, Emotional Wellbeing & Mental Health, Targeted Youth Support, Pupil Referral Units and Social Care Services.

PACA is facilitated by the User Voice and Participation Team. PACA meet regularly to ensure their voices are heard to positively shape the services that their children and young people access.

PACA is also a great, safe space for parent and carers to talk and get to know other parent and carers who may be facing similar situations.

PACA is participant led, the contents of each meeting is decided by the attendees, targeting any specific topics they would like to be discussed.

If you are a parent or carer with a child accessing services and would like your voice heard or would like to meet others who maybe in similar situations then please contact The User Voice and Participation Team!

Make sure to follow us on social media too!

“I am just so lucky to have the UVP Team and PACA!”
