RUBY

Posted: Friday 24 May 2019

Transcript

RUBY (Rise Up, Be Yourself) is a free, weekly physical fitness program for women who are, have been, or likely to be experiencing Domestic and Family Violence.

Held at over 30 PCYCs across Queensland, RUBY is designed to empower women by building physical strength and contributing to general well-being, emotional resilience, self-esteem and confidence through physical exercise in a violence free and safe environment.

The unique program gives participants a different outlet and tools to combat the DFV cycle by fostering connected relationships with other women in a safe, group environment. Sessions are facilitated by a qualified, female PT and a female member of the QPS attends and participates.

RUBY can be a conduit for the needs of the women, link participants into existing local services for support, information, referrals and resources.
