'Doing Good Work with Families'

Kurt Noble is the coordinator in the Mediation and Justice for the Central Desert Regional council based in Willowra for the next 12 months to mediate with any conflicts which may arise in the community. He has worked in a lot with government bodies like corrections, health and adult education. Kurt is originally from Cairns and has over 25 years of working in mediation and conflict resolution.

He has just moved from Darwin where he worked with Yuendumu and Lajamanu communities.  He feels that every position he has worked in has lead him to work differently.

He found he was always growing more aware of what was needed in the communities. His plan is to work with the community to come up with their own plans to stop conflict to have more peace within the family and community assisting to help our own people to work out their own system for dealing with conflict. Kurt would like to help Willowra be a “Place of Peace”
