Media Release: Domestic Violence Prevention Training
The Member for Greenslopes, Joe Kelly MP, is partnering with Brisbane Youth Services to provide a training workshop for hairdressers and beauty therapists to assist in identifying the signs of domestic violence.
Hairdressers and beauty therapists have a unique relationship with their clients and are often trusted figures who many women feel safe in sharing aspects of their personal lives with.
“Domestic violence is a complex and pervasive issue that affects community members in many different ways.”
“When finding out people you know are experiencing some form of domestic violence, trying to help is fraught with difficulties.
“Often people don’t know where these people can be referred or how to help without intruding in their personal lives.”
“This is why I’ve partnered with Brisbane Youth Service to provide a training workshop for hairdressers and beauty therapists to assist in identifying the signs of Domestic Violence and what you can do to help.”
This training is part of a wider effort to address domestic violence at a community level through the Greenslopes Domestic Violence Action Plan developed by Joe Kelly MP and community members in response to the Not Now, Not Ever Report.
“The Greenslopes Domestic Violence Action Plan aims to build capacity across community groups to identify and respond to signs of domestic violence, and this is what this training is focused on.”
The training will run on Friday the 27th of July from 5:30pm – 7:30pm at Brisbane Youth Service, 5 Zillah Street, Stones Corner.
