This is a critical new program which addresses lifestyle and substance abuse issues with young women in a critical age group and the Government is proud to be supporting their work with a $350,000 grant over three years, Mr Giles said. CEO Darren Smith said Red Dust is delighted to partner with the Government in this important area of community health. Red Dust has been working with remote communities in the NT for nearly 20 years and this program has been based on the learning and relationships we have formed over that time, he said.
