Exciting Changes and Opportunities at Tweddle

After 95 years of providing child and parenting programs and services to the Victorian community, Tweddle is pleased to announce that from April our Residential Parenting Program is being scaled up from a 4 day program to a 5 day program. This will be a relief for families that are struggling to cope and requiring the support of our multidisciplinary team. We look forward to announcing our new Director of Nursing and welcome a new Nurse Unit Manager. We have new fundraising initiatives to announce after Easter and are currently recruiting for an Operations Coordinator and a Parenting Assessment and Skills Development Care Coordinator.
