COVID 19 update for ParentsNext

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 Education, Skills and Employment.

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

If you are eligible, you can also approach us to register you directly for ParentsNext.

Why register for ParentsNext?

  • Access to financial support for your education, training and employment needs
  • Employer Wage Subsidies – to support employers in hiring you
  • Relocation Assistance – making it easier for you to relocate to get the job you want
