Helem Yumba’s DV Month Activity

Please find attached a flyer advertising Helem Yumba’s DV Month activity. We’re hosting a panel of Elders who wish to share their thoughts, concerns and their ideas about how we might best address the problem of violence in our communities. We especially would love for organisations and  individuals within the DV and Indigenous health and human services sectors to attend this very special event.

If you plan on attending please respond at your earliest convenience for catering purposes.

Domestic and Family Violence Information and Referral Facilitator

Announcement of a pilot program starting here at the Women’s Health Centre next Wednesday the 2nd July.   This position will be part time – Wednesday, Thursday and Friday from 9 – 3 pm, for a period of 6 months.

The purpose of the position will be to provide  a singular point of contact for a co-ordinated, appropriate and consistent response to families affected by domestic and family violence, and to promote a culture within our community that domestic and family violence is unacceptable.

Louise Hayes has undertaken the position of the Domestic and Family Violence Information and Referral Facilitator, which will operate within the Rockhampton Region incorporating Mt Morgan, Emu Park, Gracemere and Yeppoon.

This service will be available to people needing information and referral to agencies within the Capricornian region on domestic and family violence related matters, and to service providers who have direct contact with people and their families who are affected by domestic and family violence.

This position will assist clients and organisations with up to date information for various issues such as financial assistance, housing, counselling and support.

If your organisation would like a further explanation on this pilot program, or to work collaboratively –  please do not hesitate to contact myself to arrange a suitable time for Louise and I to come and speak with you.
