Mt Isa community leaders meet to tackle violence

MEDIA RELEASE
Minister for Disability Services, Minister for Seniors and Minister Assisting the Premier on North Queensland 
The Honourable Coralee O'Rourke

Mt Isa community leaders meet to tackle violence. Government and community leaders will meet today to discuss ways the Mt Isa community can help tackle domestic and family violence. Minister Assisting the Premier on North Queensland Coralee O’Rourke will host the roundtable session, which is one of several being held across Queensland to discuss local responses to domestic and family violence.

“There is already a lot of work being done at a local level by community organisations and service providers here in Mt Isa to help tackle domestic and family violence,” Mrs O’Rourke said. “This roundtable gives us the chance to bring together community leaders to discuss how we can work together on local solutions to help eliminate this problem.

“We know that local community leaders, groups and service providers who work with people experiencing domestic and family violence will have valuable input. “Community support is vital, because only through action from the whole community can we hope to eliminate this terrible problem.” Minister O’Rourke said the roundtable would be a valuable opportunity for community leaders and key stakeholders to discuss the recommendations in the Not Now, Not Ever: Putting an End to Domestic and Family Violence in Queensland report.

“The need for the whole community to work together against domestic and family violence was one of the central themes of Dame Quentin Bryce’s landmark report on domestic and family violence in Queensland,” Mrs O’Rourke said. “The report made recommendations about leadership and driving cultural change to help prevent domestic and family violence and support victims of abuse.

“The Palaszczuk Government will soon be releasing its response to the report’s 140 recommendations, which will underpin the development of a Domestic and Family Violence Prevention Strategy. “We are already working to help tackle domestic and family violence, including a plan to build two new crisis shelters and a $49 million fund over five years for domestic violence prevention and support services across Queensland.”
