10 June, 2019 –
There is now a new website to assist victims of domestic and family violence – www.qld.gov.au/domesticviolence
The portal was developed in consultation with domestic and family violence services as well as victims of domestic and family violence and it is simple, easy to use, and includes information on legal advice, housing options, mental health support, court support, child custody arrangements, and employment options.
Statistics tell us that one in 5 women and one in 20 men over the age of 15 have suffered physical abuse at the hands of an intimate partner. That means we all know at least one person who has experienced this unacceptable violence.
Please offer your support in a really practical way, by spreading the message about this new website.
