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 Jobs and Small Business.

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.

Centrelink may refer parents to ParentsNext if they:

  • have a child under 6 years of age
  • haven’t had paid work in the last 6 months
  • have been getting Parenting Payment for the last 6 months

Djerriwarrh provides ParentsNext across western Melbourne. For further information about ParentsNext at Djerriwarrh please call 8746 1000 or contact us here [email protected]
