The Queensland Government is in the process of consulting the community about the prevention of all forms of sexual violence. Community organisations, leaders and interested members of the public are invited to participate in the consultation.
Sexual violence has a significant and profound impact on individuals, families, and communities in Queensland. It can affect people of all ages, genders and backgrounds, and occurs in a range of settings.
Often, sexual violence has far-reaching health, social, emotional and economic impacts on victims, survivors, their families, friends and workplaces, and the broader community.
The Queensland Government strongly believes that sexual violence is unacceptable, and is committed to preventing and responding to all forms of sexual violence in our communities.
While there has already been progress, there is more work to be done to change community attitudes, prevent sexual violence from occurring, and provide better support for victims and survivors.
You can get involved by attending a forum in selected locations across Queensland or through an online survey. Youth (12-25) are also invited to participate through the Youth eHub.
