Meet our heroes

Reflecting on the enormously important role that the public sector has in our community throughout our response to the COVID-19 pandemic, it is an honour to acknowledge some of the exceptional efforts that has been undertaken by public servants who have worked tirelessly with other authorities, the community, industry and not for profit organisations (NGO).

The work that is done every day by public servants helps to keep people and communities safe, enables business to function, ensures that essential services are provided, encourages artistic endeavour, allows access to our beautiful wild areas, and so much more.

We continue to deal with the impacts of the COVID-19 pandemic, and the Territory is in such a great position compared to our interstate cousins.  We have been able to lift many of the restrictions much more quickly than in other parts of Australia.  It is the work of inspiring NTpublic servants together with our fantastic community, NGO and business sector support that has allowed the Territory to be in this position.

You will find some of our unsung COVID heroes stories below, with more to follow in the coming weeks. Our Unsung Heroes were on the front-line, and behind the scenes, working tirelessly, undertaking many long hours to do remarkable but most often unnoticed work. All of them and many others get our thanks for helping to make the Territory a wonderful place to live, work, play and grow families.
