MP CALLS FOR ADDITIONAL FUNDING FOR LOCAL HEALTHCARE IN SUNBURY
Member for Sunbury Josh Bull is today calling for more funding for Sunbury and Cobaw Community Health.
Sunbury and Cobaw Community Health’s main site at 12-28 Macedon Street is currently operating beyond capacity and in 2020 the organisation acquired additional land to expand the large array of services they already provide.
To cater for growth and increased demand, Sunbury and Cobaw Community Health is working with the Member for Sunbury with the aim of securing further funding to provide local mental health and community support.
It is hoped that increased local services could assist residents, particularly young people with mental health issues who are currently forced to travel long distances for support, as well as dedicated child and youth health services.
An expansion of facilities would also help to address the impact of last year and our recovery from the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic.
Sunbury and Cobaw Community Health has had a strong and positive relationship with the Member for Sunbury, and it is hoped that this renewed call for funding will result in a good outcome for local residents.
