Services: Codes 4 Life, Desert Leadership

Desert Knowl­edge Aus­tralia (DKA) and Vic­tims of Crime NT (VoC NT) have entered into a part­ner­ship which sup­ports Codes 4 Life work­shop deliv­er­ies for 2021. The VoC NT spon­sor­ship allows Codes 4 Life to expand its impact in the Cen­tral Aus­tralian local­i­ties of Finke (Aputu­la), Laram­ba, Ti Tree, and Harts Range.

Com­mu­ni­ty col­lab­o­ra­tion plays a cru­cial role in max­imis­ing the impact of social pro­grams; and DKA and VoC NT are pleased to announce a part­ner­ship which works to encour­age pos­i­tive behav­iour­al change and pre­vent vio­lence in Cen­tral Australia.

The work­shops will host a tra­di­tion­al Codes 4 Life struc­ture to address alco­hol and sub­stance abuse; unlaw­ful behav­iour; and sup­port the expres­sion of cul­tur­al iden­ti­ty. Addi­tion­al­ly, these work­shops will also include talks on domes­tic, fam­i­ly and sex­u­al vio­lence and con­tribute to break­ing the cycle of vio­lence in Cen­tral Australia.

Vic­tims of Crime NT are pleased to be work­ing in part­ner­ship with Desert Knowl­edge Aus­tralia to impact pos­i­tive­ly on Cen­tral Aus­tralia. This project seeks to build cul­tur­al knowl­edge, skills, and respon­si­ble atti­tudes that will con­tribute to the reduc­tion of harm caused by domes­tic and fam­i­ly vio­lence inci­dents in Cen­tral Aus­tralian com­mu­ni­ties. We look for­ward to hear­ing from par­tic­i­pants about their jour­ney through the pro­gram and the pos­i­tive changes they have been able to make as a result.”

-Melin­da Flem­ing; CEO, Vic­tims of Crime NT

VoC NT assists those who have been or may be affect­ed by crime, by pro­vid­ing them with sup­port, advo­ca­cy and pre­ven­tion strate­gies. VoC NT’s vision is to reduce the adverse impacts of crime; and build resilient indi­vid­u­als and com­mu­ni­ties with a strong sense of safe­ty, secu­ri­ty and connectedness.
