Zonta Club of Brisbane has been inducted to the Domestic and Family Violence Prevention Honour Roll, a first to be established by the Queensland Government.
The Club has been working to support women and their children whose lives have been affected by domestic violence for much of its 50-year history. The two key projects have been its involvement with Windana in providing comfort bags for children, bedding and dressing gowns as well as Christmas presents. The club has also supported DV Safety Cards, a wallet sized card with key information for women to find support, since 2001, working with Queensland Police and community organisations.
The Domestic and Family Violence Prevention Honour Roll is a recognition program to honour Queenslanders who are walking the talk on domestic and family violence prevention.
“Most of us are familiar with people and businesses who are helping to create a Queensland free from domestic and violence,” said Minister for Minister for the Prevention of Domestic and Family Violence Di Farmer.
“This is a chance to recognise them and get the message out there that they are changing other people’s lives for the better.”
The Club was inducted “in recognition of your action to prevent domestic and family violence, raise awareness and support people impacted by domestic and family violence in Australia.”
As Zontians, we are honoured to be named on the Roll and will continue to work to keep women safe across the world.
