Tweddle welcomes a new range of measures announced on the 13th of April by the Andrews Labor Government. In particular, increased in-home support services for vulnerable families and extra child protection workers ensuring that Victorian families are as safe as possible. Tweddle CEO Ms Jacquie O’Brien acknowledged the Roadmap for Reform: strong families, safe children in spelling out the importance of services working together, driving family centred approaches, and protecting children as early as possible. “As a public hospital delivering evidence based front line in home and residential interventions for vulnerable babies, toddlers and their families, Tweddle commends the initiatives as a positive start” CEO Jacquie O’Brien said today.
