ParentsNext helps eligible parents to plan and prepare for employment by the time their children go to school. It operates in 10 locations, but will be expanded to all non-remote areas of Australia from 1 July 2018.
What services will be available?
ParentsNext participants will 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.
Who will be eligible?
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.
