This page is designed for other community support services and/or agencies wanting to know more about initiatives to prevent and respond effectively to Domestic & Family Violence in the Gympie region.
The Gympie-Cooloola Partnership Against Domestic and Family Violence is a network of services and community members who work together to develop a culture of intolerance towards domestic and family violence in our community, and to build a holistic and effective approach to addressing the needs of people who have experienced domestic and family violence. We do this by meeting regularly as a forum for information sharing, practice development and action that enables a regional, integrated, strategic and best practice response to domestic and family violence in the Gympie Local Government Area.
Activities of the Partnership include:
Meetings are held on the third Tuesday of every calendar month. Contact us for further information or to request membership.
Our team works closely with other services to provide wrap around supports for women experiencing Domestic & Family Violence. For women with complex needs we may seek consent to refer to the Family Support Collective Complex Case Panel. For women who experience abuse that is assessed as likely to result in serious injury or death, we meet regularly with agencies prescribed under the Qld Domestic & Family Violence Protection Act to share information and coordinate actions to increase safety.
