Prime Minister Morrison: Let's make Australia the best place in the world to be a parent!
Australia lags developed countries in the provision of evidence-based policies that support families and children. With one of the least adequate paid parental leave policies in the world and the fourth highest out-of-pocket child care costs for families among OECD nations, escalating mental distress, a recession and workplaces that fail to accommodate caring responsibilities, parents of young children are really struggling.
It is time for a National Parenting Strategy: a coordinated framework of policies that will deliver optimal outcomes - for children, parents, society and the economy.
Join our campaign and call on Prime Minister Scott Morrison to do better for Aussie parents and children!

Prime Minister Morrison,
We’re calling on you to do better for Aussie parents and children!
To make Australia the best place in the world to be a parent we need:
- Universal health and wellbeing support for parents and children through pregnancy and the early years.
- One year of paid parental leave equally shared between parents.
- Free and high quality early childhood education & care.
Flexible and supportive workplaces with universal access to paid carers’ leave for sick children.
Let's make Australia the best place in the world to be a parent - because when parents are supported, children can thrive and whole community will be stronger.
Join our campaign today!
