04 NEWS Thursday July 14 2022 NTNE01Z01MA - V1 Plea to stop rock threat RAPHAELLA SAROUKOS POLICE are working with the Alice Springs community to address rock throwing after an increase in the activity. Police have reported several rock throwing incidents in the last year. NT Police Superintendent Tony Deutrom said police were working with stakeholders and community leaders to reduce the behaviour in the town. We are aware of an increase of this behaviour and it has to stop before someone is seriously injured or killed, Supt Deutrom said. Anyone who is a victim of rock throwing, who sees anyone throwing rocks at vehicles or who has dashcam or CCTV of this activity is urged to report it to police as soon as possible. Anyone found guilty of this behaviour towards occupants of vehicles and vessels can face up to four years jail under the Criminal Code Act 1983.

Picture: Disability Royal Commission A KIMBERLEY family has laid out how theyve been unable to spend the bulk of their sons NDIS funding because services in their remote township are simply unavailable. The tyranny of distance emerged as a serious concern among those giving evidence to the disability royal commission holding hearings in Alice Springs this week. Geoff Davis and Marmingee Hands frustrations with the system were so bad they didnt bother to register their other sons with the NDIS. And Mr Davis said of the $107,000 in funding his son Tristan was provided for his plan, only $11,000 had been spent. For the sum, Mr Davis said the NDIS ring me up two or three times a year. Funding to help Tristan get a drivers licence has been unspent for more than two and a half years because theres no service in the town, and the neurosurgeon who could give Tristan approval to get behind the wheel is in Perth. The only local provider of disability services told the couple they were so overwhelmed with demand other services funded under the plan could not be provided. Mr Davis and Ms Hand appeared via videolink, telling of their frustrations dealing with the NDIS. There is other things that Tristan most probably could benefit from if he was in Perth or Melbourne or Sydney or whatever because it would be specialists at the doorstep, Mr Davis said. But in Fitzroy Crossing there are none. Another Fitzroy Crossing resident, Mudge Bedford, also appeared before the commission on Wednesday morning. Two of Mr Bedfords children currently living with him have a diagnosed disability. He expressed frustration with understanding how to navigate the NDIS and said a work colleague dedicated personal time to help him. If I didnt have her help, I would probably, to tell you the truth, I would probably give up, he said. Mr Bedford said he didnt believe NDIS officials had visited the area and learnt to understand local Indigenous culture.
