More about the program

Accoras ParentsNext is an Australian Government Department of Employment and Workplace Relations, funded by the Department of Employment.

The Accoras ParentsNext team works with parents living in the Greater Logan, Brisbane South, Brisbane North, Gold Coast and Ipswich regions, to help them identify their education and employment goals, develop a plan to achieve these goals and link them to activities and services in their local community which can support them along the way.

We can help parents to complete a qualification, identify and work towards overcoming issues which may make it difficult for them to find employment, develop their practical skills, find out about child care fee assistance and help with enrolling in study or other activities.
