DV discussion highlights need for further action

NCWQ special presentation

A broad-ranging discussion on Queensland’s progress towards ending domestic and family violence featured at NCWQ’s June meeting.

Special guests, Acting Assistant Commissioner Domestic Family Violence and Vulnerable Persons Command, Virginia Nelson, and Women’s Legal Service Queensland CEO Nadia Bromley, provided a frank assessment of DV reform and addressed questions from those in attendance.

Further resourcing and new ways of working with perpetrators were among the topics discussed.

NCWQ President Chiou See Anderson encouraged more men to get involved, noting that domestic and family violence is a community issue, not a “women’s issue”.

The meeting, held at QUT Gardens Point, included several new NCWQ members, who received their Member badges at the conclusion of the event.
