Transfer to Wesley ParentsNext


For parents already in the ParentsNext program

ParentsNext is delivered by a wide range of organisations on behalf of the Australian Government Department of Employment, Skills, Small and Family Business. There are multiple ParentsNext providers available in each region and you can see the full list on the JobSeach website. Each organisation delivers the program using their own approach. If you are not satisfied with the service offered by the ParentsNext provider that you were initially allocated to, you can request to transfer.

Your views about the assistance you receive are important. The Department of Employment, Skills, Small and Family Business and your ParentsNext provider value any feedback you may have.

If you don’t think you are receiving the right help and would like to make a complaint, please talk to your ParentsNext provider first. Your ParentsNext provider will offer a fair feedback process and will try to resolve your concerns.

If you feel you can’t talk to your ParentsNext provider, or you are still not happy and wish to transfer, you can contact the Department of Jobs and Small Business' National Customer Service Line on 1800 805 260 (free call from land lines) or email

Further information is available on the Complaints, Compliments and Suggestions form.
