The Top End Smoke-Free Spaces Project



This project aims to support householders in three Northern Territory (NT) Aboriginal communities, in order to establish, or to extend, smoke-free spaces in the home.

Participants from households will be invited to the program and receive ongoing support from the Aboriginal Resource and Development Services Aboriginal Corporation (ARDS) and its associated networks, to take up strategies that make their homes, or at least parts of their homes, smoke-free.

The project will be delivered in communities hosting stores owned by the Arnhem Land Progress Aboriginal Corporation (ALPA). ALPA currently owns stores in East, Central and West Arnhem Land, in Far North Queensland, and in a number of other regions in the NT.

The support and strategies promoted in the project will be developed through dialogue with local community leaders, and may include:

This program is funded by the Department of Health, as part of the Tackling Indigenous Smoking (TIS) Innovation Grants, and run by ARDS.
