The Rumbalara Football Netball Club is assisting parents in making life defining choices towards their future. ParentsNext is a government program run in partnership with Catholic Care Sandhurst. The program assists parents with children under the age of six, who have been out of work or study long-term.
ParentsNext began as a pilot program in 2016 in 10 locations across Australia, Shepparton being one of them with Rumbalara FNC partnering with Catholic Care Sandhurst.
The program is designed to support parents currently receiving a Parenting Payment with children under the age of six in becoming job ready by the time their youngest child commences Primary school.
As of July 1st, 2018, the ParentsNext program rolled out nationally, across all non-remote employment regions to help parents to plan and prepare for employment.
