Support for Indigenous sexual abuse survivors in the Northern Territory

Date posted: 23 April 2014

The Australian Government has provided funding of $550,000 to two organisations in the Northern Territory to support Indigenous Australians affected by the Royal commission into institutional responses to child sexual abuse.

Funding will be allocated to the Danila Dilba Health Service in Darwin and Central Australia Aboriginal Congress in Alice Springs.

The funding is a part of a $45 million investment into services to meet increased demand for support as a result of the Royal commission, and will assist the two services to provide counselling, support or other case management services.

The Healing Foundation, which supports culturally strong locally run Indigenous healing programmes will work with the organisations as a part of a national network of Indigenous specific Royal Commission support services.

Minister for Social Services Kevin Andrews said, 'We know it is critical that survivors of sexual abuse have access to specialised and culturally appropriate support services that meet their needs.'
