This booklet highlights success stories from a range of Aboriginal community controlled organisations in the Northern Territory. The booklet demonstrates the potential of Aboriginal organisations to respond to the challenges facing their communities. Success in an Aboriginal community organisation or program was measured by the following:

1. Community participation at all levels including management.

2. Community participation that is real and not symbolic.

3. Community control of both processes and outcomes.

4. Community control over how resources are allocated.

5. Sustainability of the project, organisation or initiative.

This booklet celebrates the success stories occurring in the Northern Territory and that sustainable outcomes can be achieved for children, families and communities.
