ParentsNext by Impact Communities

ParentsNext supports parents of young children to prepare for work. Impact Communities delivers ParentsNext in southern Tasmania.

At ParentsNext we support your plan to prepare for future study or employment.

The journey starts with exploring your strengths and interests, as well as any areas that you’d like to improve. We help you set goals and step-by-step actions to achieve your best future, in life and in work.

How we help
Our goal is that every parent is able to make decisions about their future, and has achievable actions to start training, study or work. Everything will be clearly set out in a way that’s easy to follow in your Pathway Plan.

We’ve been supporting families in Southern Tasmania for more than 30 years, so we can offer activities that are connected to your local community. This could be self-paced learning, taking part in parents’ groups, volunteering with local community organisations, enrolling in a training course, trying out some work experience, or getting straight into job applications. The choice is yours, and we’re here to support you every step of the way. And if you need a helping hand with things like housing, mental health, childcare or family violence, we can connect you with experts in these areas.

If taking part in ParentsNext is a requirement to receive your Parenting Payment, we’ll make sure the activity meets your needs and we’ll help you achieve it.
