The Western Australian Planning Commission has granted approval for the construction of a Children’s Hospice in Swanbourne.

This hospice will be the first purpose-built facility in WA to provide respite and palliative care for children.

The development is said to be a collaborative effort between the Child and Adolescent Health Service and the Perth Children’s Hospital Foundation.

Premier Roger Cook said: “My Government welcomes the Western Australian Planning Commission’s approval of the new Children’s Hospice and this is a tremendous outcome for all Western Australians.

“This beautifully designed and situated hospice will make a tremendous difference to the West Australian families going through what is the most challenging of journeys.

“I am looking forward to seeing this important facility complete and supporting children, their parents, siblings and other loved ones and providing them comfort.”

The new facility will feature seven single-guest bedrooms, two two-bedroom family suites, along with a bereavement suite.

Additionally, it will include amenities such as a hydrotherapy pool, a playground, and garden spaces.

The hospice project entails an investment of A$33m ($22m).

Nedlands MLA Katrina Stratton: “I am delighted by today’s decision, one that has resounding local community support. 

“Hundreds of people signed my open letter, letting children and families know they would find a welcoming and compassionate community as they face the very worst of times.”
