As of 1 July, Djerriwarrh has a new program. We are now offering ParentsNext across western Melbourne. 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.

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

We are excited to be welcoming six new staff as ParentsNext Pathway Coaches. The Pathway Coaches will be working remotely, embedded in a number of our partner organisations across western Melbourne. Our new ParentsNext Manager, Gengiz Soyturk, comes to us from with a wealth of experience in employment services and setting up new programs across multiple sites.
