The Queensland Police Service is committed to working in partnership with the people of Queensland to provide professional policing services that will, over time, prevent and reduce the incidents of domestic violence in Queensland.

​Since the Not Now, Not Ever report was provided by the Domestic and Family Violence (DFV) taskforce to the Queensland Government on 28 February 2015, the Government has, together with other initiatives:

  • released its response to the report, including an interim implementation plan
  • released a Domestic and Family Violence Prevention Strategy and associated Action Plan and 
  • appointed a Domestic and Family Violence Implementation Council 

For more information with regard to these initiatives please refer to the End Domestic and Family Violence website – https://www.communities.qld.gov.au/gateway/end-domestic-and-family-violence

Additional DFV content can be found on the Queensland Government website –

​And there is also relevant DFV content under the violence prevention section of the Department of Communities website – 

 

 

2016 Domestic Violence Prevention Month - May

Domestic and Family Violence Prevention Month is an annual initiative coordinated by the Department of Communities, Child Safety and Disability Services.  It is held during May each year to raise community awareness and promote a clear message that domestic and family violence will not be tolerated in our communities. 

Join us in supporting this campaign which assists friends, family members, neighbours and others to recognise the signs of abuse in a relationship, including controlling behaviour, stalking, threats, intimidation and isolation.

The campaign’s call to action encourages anyone who is concerned about someone they know to call DVConnect (Womensline on 1800 811 811 or Mensline on 1800 600 636) for confidential advice on how to keep them safe.

Already this year 57 community organisations have registered to host events and activities throughout Queensland.  Check out an event near you at: http://www.qld.gov.au/community/your-home-community/domestic-family-violence-prevention-about/index.html
