PARENTS AND WORKFORCE PARTICIPATION
Supporting parents of young children to plan for future employment involves opportunities and challenges.
This study will explore the individual and external resources available to parents with employment aspirations, and examine the implications of introducing compliance and mutual obligation requirements to parents receiving Parenting Payment.
The findings will inform the development of Brotherhood service models which prepare people outside the labour force for future employment.
This study will complement the Department of Employment evaluation of ParentsNext, which is currently underway.
