NT Division

Northern Territory

The Northern Territory Division of the AAG was formed in November 2010, following a very successful AAG Northern Territory Conference that year. Formation of the Division meets a longstanding need to bring together diverse players to assist in raising awareness of ageing and aged care service delivery challenges specific to regional, rural and remote areas in the Northern Territory. Although Northern Territory is still relatively small in comparison to other States and Territories, membership is very diverse representing our unique and exciting seniors and aged care and sectors in the Northern Territory. Members are mainly based in Darwin and Alice Springs, although some members are based in more remote locations. The Executive Committee meets regularly to plan and arrange educational and other activities for members, including publication of a regular newsletter.
