Parenting Payment

Take part in ParentsNext

ParentsNext connects you to local support services to help you with your study and work goals.

If you get Parenting Payment and have a child younger than 6, you may need to take part in ParentsNext. We’ll let you know if you need to.

If you need to take part, you won’t have to look for work right now. We’ll connect you with a ParentsNext provider who’ll:

  • help you set study and work goals
  • set a participation plan with you
  • meet with you regularly
  • help you access services in the local community.
