The Children and Families Tripartite Forum is a key component of the reform program. The forum’s purpose is to address an identified need for structured and sustained high level engagement between the Northern Territory Government, Commonwealth Government and community sector regarding children experiencing vulnerability, young people and families, and child protection and youth justice issues.
The Children and Families Tripartite Forum membership includes the Northern Territory and Commonwealth governments and the community sector represented by Aboriginal Peak Organisations Northern Territory (APO NT), the Northern Territory Council of Social Service (NTCOSS); and the North Australian Aboriginal Justice Agency (NAAJA).
The Children and Families Tripartite Forum (the Forum) is chaired by Ms Donna Ah Chee and held its inaugural meeting in Alice Springs on 23 July 2018.
