Every year Tweddle's specialised team of maternal and child health nurses, mothercraft nurses, psychologists, social workers and early childhood professionals provide support to over 4,000 families facing parenting challenges.
These challenges are commonly underpinned by isolation compounded by health issues, addiction, family instability and violence, sleep deprevation, 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 offer day stay and residential programs, MyTime, our peer support groups for parents of children with a disability, developmental delay or chronic illness, one on one and group psychology support, Preparation for Childbirth and Parenting classes and parenting education in prisons.
Tweddle would like to acknowledge and pay our respects to the Traditional Custodians, past and present, of this land Wurundjeri on which Tweddle provide its services.
