DFV prevention engagement and communication strategy 2016–2026

The Domestic and family violence prevention engagement and communication strategy (PDF) sets the vision and direction for creating cultural change across Queensland over the ten year period, 2016 to 2026.

The strategy represents a new approach to domestic and family violence engagement and communication in Queensland. It puts in place the elements required to create an environment which encourages new thinking and innovation.

The development of a communication strategy on domestic and family violence by the Queensland Government was a key initiative recommended by the Not now, not ever report.

How we will deliver action

Under the Third action plan 2019–20 to 2021–22 (PDF), key initiatives delivered will continue to focus on changing community attitudes and behaviours. These initiatives build on communication and engagement campaigns delivered in Queensland to date, including campaigns targeting people who may be experiencing domestic and family violence, bystanders, youth, and the Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender, Intersex and Queer (LGBTIQ+) communities.

How you can make a difference

We need to work together to stop the behaviour and attitudes that allow domestic and family violence to continue. Find out more and help create change in your community.

How we will measure success

Evaluation is critical to ensuring that the reforms outlined in the Domestic and Family Violence Prevention Strategy 2016-2026 are achieving their stated goals. The Evaluation framework (PDF) (or DOCX) sets out how the Queensland Government will assess the impact of the reform program as well as specific initiatives, including relevant communications and engagement campaigns.
