Cradle to Kinder
Tweddle works in partnership with Melbourne City Mission, Kildonan Uniting Care, IPC Health Care and Early Childhood Management Services [ECMS]) to deliver Cradle to Kinder for the Brimbank Melton and North East Melbourne areas.
Cradle to Kinder is a whole-of-family service response in the form of pre-birth support, intensive and longer term interventions and casework support until the child reaches five.
The service supports young pregnant mothers (under 25 years) where a report to Child Protection has been received for their unborn child or where there are a number of vulnerabilities and significant concerns about the well-being of the unborn child.
There is priority access to young mothers who are or have been, in out-of-home care, Aboriginal women and women with a learning difficulty.
