THE TERRITORY Government
has launched a domestic, family
and sexual violence fund to sup-
port prevention programs and in-
There will be a $300,000 annual recur-
rent funding pool and this year $150,000
has been allocated to prevention pro-
grams in Tennant Creek.
Minister for Territory Families, Dale
Wakefield, said the Territory Govern-
ment wanted to put victims first and
invest in key areas that would create
“Domestic, family, and sexual violence
has a devastating impact on families and
our community,” she said.
“Evidence shows us that it is prevent-
“That is why a key strategy for us in
tackling this issue is through investment
in prevention programs.
“For Territory women, violence is the
single largest driver for homelessness
and is a major factor in children entering
the child protection and youth justice
systems. To create generational change,
we are breaking the cycles of family
vulnerability, violence and offending.
“We are putting victims first and that is
why we passed key legislation last year
to make women and children safer – such
as the DVO Mutual Recognition Bill, to
recognise DVOs across state borders.
We also passed the Body-worn Video
and Domestic Violence Evidence Bill
to make it easier for police footage to
be used in court to protect families and
Ms Wakefield said $3 million had been
invested to modify the Alice Springs
Court to establish and pilot a specialist
domestic and family violence court.
She said perpetrators would be held ac-
countable and given access to programs
that would change behaviour.
The Prevention Fund is part of the
domestic, family and sexual violence
reduction framework launched last
As part of the framework the NT Gov-
ernment has also committed to provide
$450,000 to develop an integrated and
specialist domestic, family and sexual
violence hub model for Tennant to sup-
port women and children in the Barkly.

Detective Senior Ser-
geant Michael Ordelman
from Territory Major
Crash Investigations said
according to one manu-
facturer there were 459
vehicles in the Territory
yet to replace their airbags.
He said heat and humid-
ity were known contribu-
tors to the airbags failing.
“If you knew the airbag a
few centimetres from your
head had the capability to
kill or permanently injure
you I don’t believe you
would voluntarily contin-
ue to drive that vehicle,”
“It takes a few hours to
replace the airbags and the
process is completely free.
“So for your own safety
and the safety of your
passengers please check if
your vehicle is on the list.”
