Member for Greenslopes encourages participation at Domestic Violence Prevention Information Evening
Member for Greenslopes, Joe Kelly MP will be running an information evening with the Greenslopes Domestic Violence Prevention Network on Wednesday the 22nd at Faith Works Uniting Community Church during Domestic and Family Violence Month.
Locals are encouraged to attend to attend the information evening to find out how to recognise the signs of Domestic and Family Violence and what services are available to support people affected.
Mr. Kelly believed Queenslanders have increasingly recognised the problem of Domestic and Family Violence in our communities, and are responding to it more so than before.
“No one should ever have to live with violence in their home or in their relationships,” he said.
“While the momentum for change is strong, there is still a long way to go.”
“Government and the community must continue to work together to ensure a safer Queensland for all.”
Mr. Kelly said the government had already brought the issue of domestic and family violence out from behind closed doors.
“Four years on from receiving the Not Now, Not Ever report, the Palaszczuk Government has completed 98 Government-directed recommendations and commenced the remaining 23,” he said.
“We have allocated a record $328.9 million over six years to drive significant reforms.”
Mr Kelly put a call out to the community not long after he was first elected to form a domestic violence advisory group.
The group, now named the Greenslopes Domestic Violence Prevention Group, have undertaken many activities in the community aimed at stopping domestic and family violence in our community.
This year, the group will host an information evening on the 22nd May from 5:30pm at Coorparoo Faithworks. All are welcome to attend.
