ParentsNext helps eligible parents to plan and prepare for employment by the time their children go to school. ParentsNext is funded by the Australian federal government’s Department of Employment and Workplace Relations.

ParentsNext providers work with parents to help them set education and employment goals, develop a pathway to achieve their goals and link them to services and activities in the local community. ParentNext participation is completely voluntary. Eligible parents choose to participate in ParentsNext to get the support they need.
