Parent Advisory Committee

The E-SEE Parent Advisory Committee (PAC) is made up of parents from your area who support the research team at the University of York by providing real-world parent perspectives that make our research accessible to other parents like you. PAC members benefit from shopping vouchers and travel expenses, and adding new skills to their CV.

If you do not think you will have time to take part in the E-SEE study as a research participant, why not become part of the PAC? In addition to the benefits listed above, you will also be part of an exciting new study which may benefit families and children living in your local community. Please see our PAC Information Sheet for further information, including seven reasons why you should join the PAC.

If you have any questions about becoming a member of the Parent Advisory Committee please contact Louise Tracey on (01904) 328160.

Meet our current PAC members

Blackburn with Darwen


My name is Ali, I have two girls aged 5 and 2. Both are really demanding, totally tiring and fantastic fun!! I am interested in how children develop into little people with their own personalities and individual characters and that is the reason why I became  involved in the E-SEE project.  Here is picture of me with my younger daughter Anya – she has just reached her terrible two’s so now she totally ignores me all the time!!


I decided to become a member of the E-SEE because I thought my years of being a mother would help provide a positive input to the services offered to new parents.




I’m Laura, I’m a mother of  3. At the moment I am a stay at home mum but I try to do as much as possible in my local community as I’m passionate about giving children the best possible start in life. I’m keen to learn from, support and build relationships with other families, this is part of the reason I joined the E-SEE PAC.








The PAC in Blackburn with Darwen also includes; Michelle, Nicole and Ruth.
