Here are links to other women’s safety, domestic violence and sexual assault resources, services and organisations as well as referral services for men.
Each year in May we mark Domestic and Family Violence Prevention Month, with the aim of sending a clear message that we will not tolerate this type of violence in our community.
Domestic and family violence is when an individual uses behaviour to control or maintain power over a person they are in a relationship with or are related to.
The Domestic Violence Resource Service (Mackay & Region) will receive more than $3.2 million from the Queensland Government over the next three years.
If you have fears for your safety and have decided to leave, it is important that you make a safety plan to help you and your children stay safe.
