Comments attributed to Swan Hills MLA Jessica Shaw:
“Before the 2017 election, I could not believe Ellenbrook was the only part of metropolitan Perth without a Child and Parent Centre. We have so many young families.
“I was determined to do better for our community. The delivery of the Centre marks the fulfilment of yet another McGowan Government commitment.
“It’s essential that we provide the facilities our kids need, through all stages of their development.
“This Centre will help expectant mothers and new families access the services and support networks they need and deserve.”
