The Board would like to present our report reviewing the Northern Territory Emergency Response, in accordance with our Terms of Reference, issued on 6 June 2008.
We thank you for the privilege of undertaking the review and offer our report in the sincere hope that it will assist the Australian Government to improve the safety and wellbeing of Aboriginal children and families living in remote communities and town camps in the Northern Territory.
