The Beswick 'Youth at risk strategy' program is the product of the related Shared Responsibility Agreement (SRA) - an agreement between the Beswick Indigenous Community, the Australian and Northern Territory Governments and local organisations that addresses the objectives, identified by the community, of eliminating petrol sniffing, reducing substance use and minimising the number of young people engaged in the criminal justice system.
The funding provided by the SRA enables: the employment of a youth worker; support from clinical, counselling, training and rehabilitiation services through various local organisations; and government support to provide strategy advice, establish council guidelines forn consumption of alcohol and other drugs and support to advocate for the establishment of non-sniffable opal fuel in the region.
