Tweddle Child and Family Health Service are seeking consumer participants that reflect the diverse communities that we serve.
We are proud to serve families from across the state, with a focus on families in Melbourne’s north and west. Tweddle welcomes people of all backgrounds, cultures, nationalities, religions and sexual identify. It is a priority to ensure that our services are accessible, appropriate and fair for all families, visitors and carers.
We seek to create a safe and welcoming environment for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander families and provide a culturally respectful space for all families. Tweddle offers interpreters at admission and intake, for two hours on the family’s first day and on a needs basis on following days.
Tweddle Consumer Partners
Tweddle invites you to add your voice and personal experience to improve the services we offer and the ways we go about supporting parents, children and babies.
There are many ways to get involved in areas of interest to you. We encourage the participation of consumers from diverse backgrounds that are reflective of the communities we serve.
Consumer Partners are volunteers who provide their views on an array of activities such as:
- Client resources we develop
- Publications we produce
- Planning our programs
- Designing our programs
- Evaluating our programs
- Evaluating feedback we receive from families
- Improving the quality and safety of our programs through targeted projects
