The NTER Review Board would like to acknowledge and thank a number people for their patience, participation and support during the course of the review.
We thank the Hon Paul Henderson MLA, the Northern Territory Chief Minister, and Dr Jeff Harmer, Secretary of the Australian Government Department of Families, Housing, Community Services and Indigenous Affairs, for ensuring the Board had the necessary access, support and resources to fulfil our responsibilities.
The Board particularly thanks all members of the Expert Reference Group for their advice.
Further, the Board thanks David Allen, Howard Pedersen and the consultants who provided valuable advice to the Board—especially John Taylor, Bob Searle and Cliff Walsh. The Board also acknowledges the contribution of our researchers, Laura Beacroft, Michael O'Donnell, Terri Libesman, Daryl Higgins and Damien O'Leary. The Board would also like to thank members of the Secretariat from both the Australian and Northern Territory Governments for their professionalism and dedication to the task.
The Board in particular acknowledges and thanks all the Aboriginal people from the communities we met and who made time to talk with us.
