Employment support for parents - ParentsNext

Discover a pathway into employment designed for parents with children under six years old with ParentsNext.

Achieve your goals by accessing core activities and services in the local community. Together, we work with you to address barriers such as:

  • access to transport
  • lack of confidence, work experience or education and training
  • cultural and linguistic differences
  • access to childcare
  • lack of family support
  • unstable / unaffordable accommodation
  • presence of domestic and family violence
  • mental and physical health concerns.

You can also access information and connect with other service providers such as financial advisors, counsellors and psychologists, affordable childcare, peer and social supports, accommodation and housing support.

Eligibility requirements include:

  • families whose youngest child is under six years of age and who have had no employment for the last six months
  • parents who are required to participate in ParentsNext as a condition of receiving Parenting Payments
  • parents who wish to participate on a voluntary basis (in some locations).
