MyTime comes to Tarneit and Avondale Heights

By Kerrie Gottliebsen

Tweddle is thrilled to announce a new location for MyTime families at the Tarneit Community Learning Centre in Tarneit. Tweddle’s Pascoe Vale group is relocating to the Rhonda Davis Centre in Avondale Heights.

These new locations join our current locations in Maidstone, Manor Lakes, Point Cook and Newport.

MyTime provides support for mothers, fathers, grandparents and anyone caring for a child aged 0-18 with a disability or chronic medical condition. MyTime provides a place to socialise, to discuss, to get information, and to support and be supported by other carers.

Facilitators work with group members, helping them get to know each other and learn more about the services and supports in their area. Members choose what they would like to discuss in their groups, with help from the facilitator. Depending on what the group wants to do, the facilitator might guide group activities or provide resources.

Facilitators are workers from local organisations. They have qualifications and experience in disability, parenting or family support and bring to the MyTime group a good understanding of local resources and support services.

Play helpers keep children, including under school aged siblings, busy and active in activities such as singing, drawing, playing with toys, blocks or sand so members can spend time catching up with one another. Play helpers have skills in leading children’s play activities. However, they may not be qualified child care workers.

We welcome new families to our groups across Melbourne’s West. For more information visit our MyTime page or call Tweddle on 9689 1577.
