Our ParentsNext service helps parents identify their education and employment goals, develop a pathway to achieve their goals and link them to activities and services in the local community.
As a ParentsNext provider, we can assist parents to plan and prepare for employment by the time their youngest child reaches school age
ParentsNext participants get help to:
Identify education and employment goals
Develop a pathway to achieve their goals
Combine preparing for work with parenting responsibilities
Access activities and services in the local community.
Participants in the Intensive Stream may be able to access a range of other support including a participation fund, wage subsidies and relocation assistance.
Parents may have to participate in ParentsNext if they have:
received Parenting Payment for the last six months
not had employment earnings during this period, and
a child aged under six years.
Centrelink will contact parents who need to participate in ParentsNext and connect them to a local provider.
Parents who receive Parenting Payment and have a child under six years can volunteer for ParentsNext if they live in an Intensive Stream location.
The ParentsNext office has a children’s corner as well, so I can bring my son along to my appointments and he can play while we talk.
