Gunbalanya family safety program

 

Overview

The people of Gunbalanya (on the eastern border of Kakadu National Park on the traditional lands of the Kunwinjku people in the Northern Territory) took charge of community safety with a home-grown program. The Gunbalanya family safety program drew on the knowledge and experience of local people and culture in developing and implementing initiatives and services to address issues such as alcohol and other drug use and family violence.
