Govt Grants for Parent Pre-employment Programs
Tuesday, 22nd December 2015 at 10:48 am

The Federal Government will shortly announce grant funding for programs to help parents of young children plan and prepare for future employment.

In the 2015-16 Federal Budget, the Australian Government announced a Youth Employment Strategy as part of the Growing Jobs and Small Business package. As part of this strategy, a new program has been developed that will provide support to parents with young children, who are at risk of long term unemployment and welfare dependency, to prepare for work.

The Government will shortly be seeking applications for funding under this new program. Applications will be sought from qualified organisations to establish projects that help parents of young children to plan and prepare for employment by the time their youngest child reaches school age.

The program will operate in 10 Local Government Areas: Bankstown, Wyong and Shellharbour in New South Wales; Hume and Greater Shepparton in Victoria; Logan and Rockhampton in Queensland; Playford in South Australia; Kwinana in Western Australia; and Burnie in Tasmania.

Information on the application process will be available on the Employment Services Procurement Information website in January 2016.
