About ParentsNext

Caring for young children can be a full-time job. But by the time their children reach school age, many parents consider joining the workforce. The Australian Government’s ParentsNext program aims to help them make the transition. 

SSI provides ParentsNext services at locations in Sydney and in parts of Queensland, helping parents to create goals around employment, gain new skills and secure work. We work with both voluntary participants and compulsory participants referred to us by the Department of Human Services.

Where appropriate, our facilitators help you gain access to skills and job-readiness training.
