About the DFV Prevention Council

The Domestic and Family Violence Prevention Council (the Prevention Council) has been appointed for the term of the Fourth action plan 2022–23 to 2025–26 of the Domestic and family violence prevention strategy 2016–2026 (the strategy) to 30 June 2026.

Learn about the members of the Prevention Council.

The Queensland Government established the Prevention Council to support greater community understanding about domestic and family violence (DFV) and to challenge the values, beliefs, attitudes and behaviours that trivialise, excuse or perpetuate this abuse.

Working at the primary prevention level, the Prevention Council partners with government, business and community stakeholders to champion local community-led action and leadership in creating social change. Through enhanced education, understanding and place-based responses, the Prevention Council supports all Queenslanders to play their part in ending DFV.
