Welcome to APO NT

Aboriginal Peak Organisations Northern Territory—APO NT—is an alliance comprising the Central Land Council (CLC), Northern Land Council (NLC), North Australian Aboriginal Justice Agency (NAAJA), Central Australian Aboriginal Legal Aid Service (CAALAS) and the Aboriginal Medical Services Alliance of the NT (AMSANT). The alliance was created to provide a more effective response to key issues of joint interest and concern affecting Aboriginal people in the Northern Territory, including through advocating practical policy solutions to government.

APO NT is committed to increasing Aboriginal involvement in policy development and implementation, and to expanding opportunities for Aboriginal community control.

APO NT also seeks to strengthen networks between peak Aboriginal organisations and smaller regional Aboriginal organisations in the NT.

APO NT is not incorporated, but governed by the CEOs of its member organisations, with day-to-day activities coordinated through an officers’ group drawn from each organisation.

APO NT is a member of the National Congress of Australia's First Peoples.

APO NT has a set of agreed guiding principles for our research, advocacy and policy work.

The Fred Hollows Foundation is supporting APO NT in employing a Policy Officer and FaHCSIA is funding an Aboriginal identified Project Officer position.
