CAAPS is very proud to have the support of corporate and government sponsors for our programs. We work hard to foster our professional relationships and have been able to sustain our programs at an operational level with funding from the Northern Territory and Commonwealth Government. In recent times CAAPS has also attracted the support of the business sector to enhance our work by creating educational opportunities for young people much broader than the reach of our previous programs with the capacity to bring lasting change.
The NIAA department provides our core funding under the Indigenous Advancement Strategy for the operation of all our Healthy Families programs. These programs include our 12-week AOD treatment program, Dolly Garinyi Hostel, our Children’s program for families with accompanying children, and our onsite Health Worker and after-hours life skills development programs.
NH PHN provides funding for the Strong Steps Counselling Service as an outreach into the Rural Area of Darwin. The pilot program will be evaluated to measure the impact of providing support to reduce harm from methamphetamine use in our community and is delivered in collaboration with Amity Community Services. PHN has recently supported CAAPS with additional training in particular related to clinical supervision for managers.
