Tweddle provides parenting education to mums and dads in prison.   Thanks to The Mary Mackillop Foundation, women at Tarrengower Prison are now participating in group sessions that help them with parenting as they prepare to return to their families and community.  Mums attending Tweddle’s parenting workshops have a total of 26 children between them.  

Sessions cover, relationships, emotions, parenting, security and the skills and strategies required to make a positive transition to family life.   Tweddle’s Prison Program Manager Jodie makes the 280km round trip to work with women to help improve the outcomes for vulnerable children.
