Sensitivity Warning

First Peoples

Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples should be aware that this resource may contain images or names of people who have since passed away.


The Northern Territory government Remote Engagement and Coordination Strategy (RECS) aims to improve the way they coordinate their services and engage with regional and remote Aboriginal community members. Doing this will hopefully lead to better outcomes through more culturally appropriate engagement between the workforce and the diverse Aboriginal peoples and cultures across the Northern Territory.

The RECS was designed by an interagency working group based in Alice Springs through a series of workshops. The group included representatives of agencies whose core work involves remote service provision, two regional councils and the Charles Darwin University.

Challenges in practising good engagement and coordination in regional and remote Northern Territory areas are intensified by sparsely populated regions, long distances, a harsh climate, many different language and cultural groups, a history of fraught relationships with governments, multiple programs working in the same space with the same people and high staff turnover. The Northern Territory government is committed working to address these challenges to ensure effective engagement in partnership with Aboriginal people.
