Join Our Community
What can the PATA community offer you? A way to take some of the strain - we help take care of you so you can take care of your children.
We offer a unique and friendly service. At PATA we are proud to offer a friendly service where we still speak to those we support. Our members know we are only a phone call away and our small and friendly team know how unique the problems and challenges facing our sector can be as we have experience of them. Our PATA Managed groups enable us to have first-hand experience of what it is like being a community group in the current climate and we always strive to share our experiences and best practice with our members.
We offer much more than telephone support. From bespoke training to a multitude of online resources, we aim to share our knowledge in the most effective and easy way for you to use within your setting.
We offer more than just a payroll service. Many people join us to take away the strain placed by legal payroll requirements. Our payroll team specialise in non-standard community groups whose staff work term time, part time hours. We now also have a number of local Parish Councils whom we also provide a personal service to as they also benefit from our knowledge of unique community groups.

Become a volunteer. At PATA we understand the value of volunteering and always welcome volunteers into our community. We have a broad range of work to fit existing skills or to help develop new skills – from data handling and social media to getting your hands dirty in a PATA managed playgroup.

We regularly offer training opportunities to our volunteers to ensure they have the skills and confidence to carry out their duties.
