Our community includes the suburbs of Karama, Malak, Wulagi and Anula where 4000 children and young people live in 3 268 families.
The Sanderson Alliance is a way for everyone in the Sanderson Community to work together so that all our children and young people learn and thrive. We are a cross-sectoral, community-led collective partnership between schools in the Sanderson area, parents, carers, schools, community services, government departments, businesses, churches, sporting clubs, cultural leaders and others.
The story of the Sanderson Alliance started in 2014 when schools and organisations working in the Sanderson area came together to look at new ways of working together collaboratively. Now, using a collective impact approach since late 2015, we are working closely together for children and young people.
The early work to create the Sanderson Alliance has been led by:
|Anglicare||Malak Primary School|
|Anula Primary School||Malak Reengagement Centre|
|Australian Department of Social Services||Manunda Terrace Primary School|
|CatholiCare||NT Music School|
|Charles Darwin University||Opportunity Child|
|City of Darwin||Red Cross|
|Corrugated Iron Youth Arts||Sanderson Middle School|
|Danila Dilba||Sanderson area residents|
|Darwin Community Arts||Save the Children|
|Good Start Early Learning||The Smith Family|
|Karama and Sanderson Members of Legislative Assembly||Wulagi Primary School|
|Karama Primary School|
We have also been well supported by Darwin Community Arts, Sanderson Neighbourhood Activity Centre, the Multicultural Council of the NT, Dawn House and NT Domestic Violence directorate, YWCA and the Larrakia Nation.
