This project grew out of an earlier one in which NDRI staff provided training to the staff to Tangentyere Council - the major service delivery agency for Alice Springs' 18 town camps - to conduct and evaluation of trial liquor licensing restrictions introduced in Alice Springs in 2003. As a result of the success of this project, Tangentyere Council established its own 'Research Hub'. Hub staff were provided with support and training by NDRI, Edith Cowan University and the Flinders Universtity and NDRI based a staff support person within Tangentyere Council. The Hub conducted research into issues such as 'loss and grief', mobility between town camps and remoted communities, the use of mobile telephones by Aboriginal people, and the impact of injury.
