Domestic and Family Violence Prevention Month is an annual event held each May to raise community awareness of the social and personal impacts of domestic and family violence and the support available to those affected.
It's an opportunity to encourage communities and individuals to speak out against violence and abuse and to empower people to work together towards its prevention.
The key aims of the month are to:
- Raise community awareness of domestic and family violence and its impacts
- Promote a clear message of no tolerance of domestic and family violence in Queensland communities
- Ensure those who are experiencing domestic and family violence know how to access help and support
- Encourage people who use abuse and/or violence to take responsibility for their abusive behaviour and seek support to change
