The Northern Territory Government, in partnership with Lhere Artepe, the Alice Springs Town Council and the Chamber of Commerce are implementing a range of measures to support the community and improve social outcomes. However, family dysfunction, crime and antisocial behaviour continues to have a significant impact on the local community, businesses and families in Mparntwe/Alice Springs, and more needs to be done.

This response focuses on three key areas to improve safety, support stronger families and engage young people. This work aligns with existing strategies, the Lhere Artepe Cultural Protocols and is aimed at delivering direct improvements in these areas.

This document is also known as the Social Order Response Team (SORT) plan.
