Bringing important local services to Mickleham

The Andrews Labor Government is making it easier for the Mickleham community to access health, education and social services.

Member for Yuroke Ros Spence today officially opened the new Annadale Interim Community Facility in in Mickleham.

Mickleham families will now have access to maternal and child health services and a preschool with up to 33 spaces and staff resource areas.

There will also be a multi-purpose community meetings space for activities and community programs such as playgroups, new parent groups, enhanced playgroups and community meetings.

Hume City Council received $500,000 for the new facility to support young families in Mickleham who previously had to travel more than 11 kilometres to access important health, education and social services.

Hume City Council contributed another $200,000 to the project. The council has received $9.72 million from the Growing Suburbs Fund over the past two years.

This Labor Government recently announced another $50 million for the Growing Suburbs Fund, allocated over the next two years as part of the Victorian Budget 2017/18.
