This evaluation considers the first three years of operation of the Juvenile Pre-Court Diversion Scheme the Aboriginal Interpreter Service (AIS) in the Northern Territory. The programs are funded jointly by the Commonwealth and Northern Territory Governments. The evaluation by Urbis Key Young found that the AIS has had a significant impact in enhancing access to services and promoting the well-being of Aboriginal people in the Northern Territory. It also found that the juvenile diversion scheme has been effective in reducing the overall number of juveniles who appear before the court.
