Campbell Page takes a family focus with ParentsNext

Campbell Page is delighted to have been selected to deliver ParentsNext to help families across Illawarra South Coast.

The addition of ParentsNext builds on many years of successful community-focused service delivery in Illawarra South Coast communities. These services include jobactive and a range of community services – where we have built up considerable experience of supporting families, parents and job seekers.

Through the ParentsNext program, local parents will receive a personalised service, choosing from a range of activities that will prepare them to re-enter the workforce. Campbell Page will focus on helping parents with children under the age of six by providing the support needed to re-enter the workplace when they are ready.

ParentsNext is a fantastic opportunity to provide meaningful support to parents and give them everything they need to re-enter the workforce successfully when they are ready, and build great careers.  This brings together Campbell Page’s great local links with employers, and experience supporting families in our communities. – Ross McLatchie, Campbell Page COO

ParentsNext will deliver tailored assistance, through identifying education and employment goals, matching them with activities to prepare them to re-enter the workforce, while also providing access to suitable referral services within the community. It is expected to help around 68,000 parents across Australia to plan and prepare for employment by the time their children are at school.

The communities Campbell Page will be delivering ParentsNext in include:

  • Bega
  • Bowral
  • Eden
  • Kiama
  • Merimbula
  • Nowra
  • Shellharbour
  • Ulladulla
  • Wollongong
