Larrakia Nation’s visit to Tangentyere

Nine staff Larrakia Nation recently went down to visit Tangentyere Council, our counterpart in Alice Springs, primarily to visit their Night Patrol and Aged Care but also to see how they run their services and discuss ways to better work together in future.

Our staff came away really impressed by the way they support the town camp residents and the way their Night Patrol call centre allows people to contact Night Patrol directly to support early intervention on an issue.

We also visited Mission Australia, the Akwelyere Healing Centre and the Alice Springs visitor park and hope to bring some of the insights and innovations happening in the Red Centre back to Darwin. Thanks to Tangentyere for looking after us while we were there and we look forward to your visit to Darwin.
