Shifting community attitudes and behaviours

We are working with the Queensland community, schools, businesses, religious and sporting organisations to drive a significant shift in community attitudes and behaviours together.

Through our collective efforts, we will embed respectful relationships and a zero tolerance approach to domestic and family violence throughout the community so that everyone, everywhere, feels safe, supported and protected.

Creating cultural change
