The Taskforce in action

During the course of the review, the Taskforce travelled the state conducting extensive community engagement and consultation.

Taskforce Chair travels to North Queensland

In early September 2014, Ms Bryce, as Chair of the Domestic and Family Violence Taskforce travelled to different communities across northern Queensland to meet with those who work with people affected by domestic and family violence. The purpose of this trip was to listen and learn about the local issues and how these communities are responding to domestic and family violence.

Domestic violence a growing scourge

On Friday 26 September 2014, Ms Bryce spoke with ABC News about the role of the taskforce and how it is essential for the community to contribute to an effective strategy to combat the growing problem of domestic and family violence.


Ms Bryce and the Taskforce joined some of Queensland’s leading experts on domestic and family violence at two summits, in Brisbane on 27 October and Townsville on 4 November 2014.
