Stop JET funding cuts
- Any parent or people who are thinking of becoming parents..
I'm 18 years old and have a beautiful 13 month old daughter. I started the young parents program at balga senior high school in Western Australia in July 2006.
This facility helps young parents go back to school so that they can receive a proper education and do well in life for themselves and their children. We currently get JET assistance so that we dont have to pay full price for child care, and we can still afford the necessities in life. May I add that not only young people receive this payment it is ALL parents that return to study, whether it be school, TAFE or Uni. Now the government are planning to only give the JET payment to eligable applicants for 1 year and then make them pay $127 per week! We are trying to do whats right by going back to school so we can get a good job and get OFF centrelink.
As you can see the Government really cares! Please sign this petition so that all parents have a fighting chance in life to build a good foundation for their children.
We, the undersigned, call on the Government to review the funding cuts of the JET payment.
You can further help this campaign by sponsoring it
