The Domestic Violence Resource Service and the Mackay Women’s Sexual Assault Service run events and activities throughout the year to coincide with worldwide or national awareness days and months.
Sexual Violence Awareness Month
Sexual Violence Awareness Month is held during October each year to promote support options to those affected by sexual violence, raise awareness in the community, and uphold the message that sexual violence is not tolerated in our community. Watch this space for local events and activities.
Domestic and Family Violence Prevention Month
Each May is Domestic and Family Violence Prevention Month to help raise awareness in the community and send a clear message that violence of this sort will not be tolerated.
