Stronger futures in the Northern Territory : report on consultations


This report provides a summary of the feedback received in community and public meetings on building stronger futures for Aboriginal people in the Northern Territory. Most legislated Northern Territory Emergency Response (NTER) measures will cease in August 2012 and funding for most measures continues to June 2012. Between the end of June and mid-August 2011, the Australian Government conducted wide-ranging consultations with Aboriginal and other Territorians on new approaches and new ideas for the future beyond the NTER. The purpose of the consultations was to seek the views of people living in the Northern Territory on what to do after the NTER ends in 2012 to tackle the unacceptable level of disadvantage still experienced by Aboriginal people in the Northern Territory. This report presents a synthesis of the feedback from the Stronger Futures in the Northern Territory consultations. The NTER measures have continued during the consultation process and will continue until the Parliament considers and passes new legislation or when the existing measures cease.
