About Tweddle Child and Family Health Service 

Every year Tweddle's specialised team of maternal and child health nurses, registered and mothercraft nurses, psychologists, social workers and early childhood professionals provide support to over 4,000 families facing parenting challenges. 

Our highest priority is to provide assistance to families that are facing multiple challenges and who are in urgent need of therapeutic support and intervention.  These challenges are commonly underpinned by isolation compounded by health issues, addiction, family instability and violence, sleep depriviation, feelings of being unable to cope and the complexities that can arise from financial stress, age, ethnicity and other factors. 

We now require health professional referral for our day stay and residential programs. This ensures that we are providing the sort of wrap around services that connect families back to community supports. We also provide peer support groups for parents of children with a disability, developmental delay or chronic illness (My Time), one on one and group psychology support, preparation for childbirth and parenting education classes and a program for parents in prison.  Learn more...
