May's Family and Domestic Violence Prevention month may be over, but Council is continuing to keep the message alive within the Capricorn Coast region.
As part Council’s ongoing campaign to help prevent Family and Domestic Violence, a large billboard has been erected displaying the message, “Respect yourself, your community, your environment” on Rockhampton-Yeppoon Road.
Community Development Councillor Jan Kelly said a large banner could also be found on the northern entrance to Emu Park, on the Scenic Highway.
“The banner and billboard are an extension of Council’s initiatives during May which included a successful round of Information Stalls offering support and advice to help anyone experiencing family and domestic violence,” Cr Kelly said.
“Council believes spreading the message of respect to all people in every area of life is vital to creating a positive and inclusive community where domestic violence will not be tolerated.
“We hope the large signage, funded with assistance from the Queensland Government, will remind residents to take care of one another and speak out or seek support if they or someone they know is experiencing family and domestic violence.”
Council is absolutely committed to keeping our residents and wider community safe. A big part of ensuring that safety is ensuring our residents have the right information and know where to find help via DVConnect on 1800 811 811.
