The Maningrida Child Safety Service consists of a group of women in the community of Maningrida in the Northern Territory (NT), who seek to protect local children and educate the community to generate change. The program operates two nightly patrols, seven days a week - one run by men and the other by women.
During the day, the group follow up on events and speak with the families and the school to ensure young people are properly educated about sexual health, positive life skills, alcohol and other drug use and protective behaviours through programs that help connect them to their country and culture.
