The Queensland Government has launched a new awareness campaign to support Queenslanders affected by domestic and family violence during the COVID-19 pandemic.

Domestic and family violence has profound and tragic impacts across our communities. It happens when one person in a relationship uses abuse or violence to maintain power and control over another person and it can take many forms. Abuse is not only physical – it can be emotional, sexual, financial, social, spiritual, verbal, psychological, or technology-based.

We all have a responsibility to address domestic and family violence in our workplaces and communities. Your support and action can make a difference. Find out more about how you can help, and the support that’s available, at www.qld.gov.au/dfvsupport.

If you or someone you know is experiencing domestic and family violence please do not hesitate to call DVConnect Womensline on 1800 811 811, or Mensline on 1800 600 636.

If making a phone call isn’t a safe option for you, contact the Police online via their online reporting portal.

If you are in danger and need immediate assistance – call Triple Zero (000) and ask for Police.

If you are a manager or a supervisor in a retail environment and you suspect domestic violence is taking place, you can access free resources through our Domestic Violence Retailer Support Hub.
