NTCOSS congratulates Michael Gunner and his Territory Labor team on their re-election.

In 2016, Labor took power on the back of a significant platform of reform across Aboriginal Justice, Youth Justice and Child Protection, Domestic, Family and Sexual Violence, Remote Housing and Climate Change. Those reforms are underway but not yet complete, and we look forward to working with the NT Labor Government in ensuring they are fully delivered, for the benefit of all Territorians. These commitments include the introduction of a Single Act for children and families in 2021; the implementation of the 10 year Framework to address Domestic, Family and Sexual Violence; and the introduction and funding of the Aboriginal Justice Agreement.

 

NTCOSS will continue to advocate for the introduction of a Climate Act; support and resources for the transition to renewable energy across the NT; and the expansion of the NT Concession Scheme, along with other key issues identified in the lead up to the 2020 election.

 

NTCOSS also eagerly awaits the recommendations of the Territory Economic Reconstruction Commission,  and trust it will advise on a range of economic stimulus measures that are consistent with a clean future for the NT, delivering lasting benefit to all Territorians, including our remote population who are already the most disadvantaged.
