Who is eligible?
Parents who have at least one child aged under six years and older than six months, have had no paid employment in the last six months and live in the following Local Government Areas may be eligible to apply for assistance through Aspire:
- Hume (Vic)
- Playford (SA)
Some parents may be required to participate as a condition of receiving Parenting Payment. In that case, the Department of Human Services will be in contact with those parents to advise accordingly and refer them to their local ParentsNext Project provider.
However, ParentsNext Project providers can also assist parents who wish to participate on a voluntary basis, provided that they meet the eligibility requirements stated.
Aspire is an inclusive project which is accessible to parents with disability and parents from Indigenous or culturally or linguistically diverse backgrounds. SYC will work with you to ensure you can access the program. We will also provide key information translated into local languages and arrange an interpreter if you need one.
Aspire assists parents in the Hume and Playford Local Government Areas. Parents living in these areas can contact SYC on the details provided here.
