Horsham Rural City Council Says...

2018-2019 once again saw an increase in participation by Aboriginal Children in the Maternal Child Heath program. This has been achieved by the work Council has done building the relationship with the local Aboriginal Co-operative Goolum Goolum and the ease of access to the service by having a MCH nurse based at Goolum Goolum half a day every week.
