Not Now, Not Ever: Response to domestic and family violence

The existence of domestic and family violence in our community and its prevention is everybody's responsibility. It is a complex issue that can impact on anyone, regardless of age, wealth, location, cultural background, sexual identity or gender.

Not Now, Not Ever: Putting an End to Domestic and Family Violence in Queensland Taskforce Report

On 28 February 2015, Dame Quentin Bryce's landmark Not Now, Not Ever: Putting an End to Domestic and Family Violence in Queensland Taskforce Report was provided to the Premier of Queensland. The Queensland Government will implement all 140 recommendations from the report.

Departmental resources

The Department of Education and Training is committed to the safety of staff, students and families and eliminating domestic and family violence in any of its forms. Nobody should have to tolerate domestic or family violence and the Department strongly encourages those affected to seek help.
