The purpose of the Parenting Program grant opportunity is to engage an organisation to deliver an online, evidence-based program providing interactive, engaging and easily navigable parenting resources, strategies and learning tools for parents and carers with a child 0-11 years of age, and a supporting national promotion campaign.

Objectives of the Parenting Program are:

  • Increased availability and access to online evidence-based parenting education and support.
  • Improved parent and carer mental health literacy and use of evidence-based parenting strategies.
  • Improved confidence of parents and carers to support the mental health and wellbeing of their children, including identification of potential problem behaviours and when and how to access early intervention and support.
  • Improved mental health and wellbeing outcomes for children and their families, including behavioural outcomes, emotional wellbeing, and resilience outcomes. 
  • Increased public perception on benefits of parenting programs as a normal, proactive parenting option for new and experienced parents and carers.
  • Reduced stigma of parents and carers to ask for help and support for themselves and their children.
  • Additional referral pathway and support for health professionals, maternal and child health centres, headspace services, Adult Mental Health Centres, Health to Health Kids Hubs, PHNs and educators to refer parents and carers requiring additional parenting support and education.

Intended outcomes of the Parenting Program grant opportunity are:

  • Provide universal, freely available, access for all Australian parents and carers with a child 0-11 years of age to evidence based, best practice online parenting strategies and resources.
  • Implement a national multi-media communication campaign aimed at promoting the availability and value of the Parenting Program and promote to at-risk groups.
