May is Domestic and Family Violence Prevention Month in Queensland.  The purpose of the month is to help raise help community awareness and send a clear message that domestic and family violence will not be tolerated.

Everyone in the community has a role to play in raising awareness.  Here are a few ways you can be involved.

  2. Follow Domestic Violence Action Centre on socials to help keep the conversation going and raise awareness: Facebook, Instagram and LinkedIn.
  3. Host your own event, it could be a morning tea or crochet for a cause, a dinner party or a walk, anything that could help raise awareness.
  4. Approach us for a community talk or to be a guest speaker at your event: click here to email us.
  5. Attend local events.
