We work with parents to identify their education and career goals, helping them to plan and prepare for employment by the time their youngest child reaches school age.
The project helps parents to identify and address barriers to employment, such as: lack of education; limited work experience; health concerns; housing instability; family issues.
ParentsNext can link parents with services in the local community.
This can help parents to:
- increase their educational qualifications
- develop practical skills to get a job
- access child care assistance
We have the flexibility to tailor assistance to meet a parent’s individual needs and work with a range of other organisations that focus on: migrant services; local health services; educational services; local government; job services.
