Abstract: Sustainable Service Responses to Family Violence in Remote Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Communities in North Queensland was a 12 month action research project funded by the Australian Government under the National Homelessness Strategy. The project aimed to: - document the unique models of service delivery operating in remote communities; - explore the strengths and weaknesses of the existing service responses; and - make recommendations around developing sustainable service responses for the future. The project involved twelve Supported Accommodation Assistance Program (SAAP) funded services across North Queensland. The services are located at Aurukun, Mornington Island, Kowanyama, Doomadgee, Pormpuraaw, Bamaga, Thursday Island, Lockhart River, Hopevale, Yarrabah and Palm Island. The project also aimed to deliver some tangible benefits to communities throughout its implementation. This included training, assistance with local issues and development of some resources.
