“The Northern Territory Emergency Response
(NTER) is making good progress with more than 15,000 people
on income management, more police on the beat and a
successful school nutrition program in 70 communities. The
Australian Government is moving the NTER to a sustainable
development phase to ensure measures will be effective for
the long-term, including engagement and partnership with
Indigenous communities. We are committed to strengthening
our efforts to combat violence, child abuse and rebuild
social norms. The Government must help protect women and
children from the shocking levels of abuse and violence.”
