Closing the Gap in the Northern Territory Monitoring Report, July - December 2010, Part One


Provides data collected between June and December of 2010 on the Northern Territory Emergency Response to reports of abuse and neglect against children, represented in ‘The Little Children are Sacred’ report. The measures were designed to protect children in the Northern Territory from abuse and neglect and improve the situation of Indigenous people in the Northern Territory. Part one of this report includes a background to the NTER, and overview of the redesign process, an outline of the evaluation and monitoring of the NTER, NTER measures and key points for the whole-of-government report. Part one summarises findings in relation to early childhood, health, economic participation and welfare reform, land tenure, community safety and governance and leadership. Of particular significance was legislation to repeal all provisions in the NTER legislation that suspended the operation of the Racial Discrimination Act 1975, which was passed by Parliament on 21 June 2010 and took effect on the 31st of December 2010, and the introduction of a non-discriminatory model of income management.
