Invitation to Launch
A Better Way: Success Stories in Aboriginal Community Control in the Northern Territory
There has been much media attention in recent years on the serious challenges facing Aboriginal communities in the NT. As a part of the A Better Way Campaign, ANTaR is releasing a publication that showcases best practice community development models. We collected stories of successful community programs and initiatives in the NT that involve Aboriginal people and their communities in decision-making, resource allocation and the management and running of programs. The initiatives showcased display great determination and ingenuity in their efforts to improve the lives of their communities. There is an impressive diversity of Aboriginal controlled organisations, services and businesses involved in almost every aspect of community life and economic development. Programs featured within the booklet include the Waltja Tjutangku Palyapayi Aboriginal Corporation, Sunrise Health Service, the Traditional Credit Union and the Central Land Council to name a few.
The publication is a timely reminder to the Federal Government that Aboriginal community control is critical to achieving sustainable outcomes for children, families and communities.
The launch of the publication is on Tuesday 26 October at 10am at the Supreme Court Foyer in Darwin. If you would like to attend please RSVP to us.
The publication will be available to download from our website after the 26th October.
