Support of Tangentyere Council research hub project



This project aims to build the capacity of the Northern Territory's Tangentyere Council to conduct its own research into the needs of Aboriginal town camp residents in Alice Springs. The project includes the provision of training and support for Tangentyere Council staff, and collaboration on various current and proposed research projects.

The project developed out of long-standing cooperative relationships between Tangentyere Council, the National Drug Research Institute, the Centre for Social Research (Edith Cowan University), and the Centre for Remote Health (Flinders University and Charles Darwin University). This collaborative work included research on 'loss, grief and alcohol', alcohol restrictions in Alice Springs, and the development of a night patrol monitoring and evaluation database.
