Congratulations to Board Member Casey Bishop on Human Rights Award

The Association of Alcohol and other Drug Agencies NT would like to congratulate long-standing member and new board member Casey Bishop on receiving the Fitzgerald Social Change Award at the Supreme Court in Darwin 10 December.

The accolade recognised Mr Bishop as "highly regarded by his teams for his leadership, clear communication and well managed programs for the Aboriginal communities they serve".

The Katherine Times wrote, "...Mr Bishop has managed to build and strengthen a number of key programs - from driving the Venndale drug and alcohol rehabilitation centre to expanding Katherine's night patrol and helping to establish a night bus to ensure youth roaming the streets can get from A to B safely.

He is also a key player in running a new youth diversion program and the up and coming Child and Family Center slated to open early next year.

"My findings over the last decade is that a lot of people find it difficult to find support, and being that contact, being that person or organisation people lean on is a big thing," Mr Bishop said.

"Our role is to make ourselves redundant, our job is to put ourselves out of business, to solve people's issues so they don't have to come back to us."

Congratulations Casey!
