The latest progress check on the Not Now, Not Ever report shows important community grants and events to put a stop to domestic violence are plummeting under the Palaszczuk Labor Government.

LNP Shadow Minister for the Prevention for Domestic and Family Violence Stephen Bennett said: "It's alarming that the number of people needing to access crisis accommodation has increased to 12,433 in just one year."

"At the same time, it's sad to see the number of community grants for domestic and family violence awareness plummet by more than 38 per cent.

"There have also been 26,933 breaches of DV protection orders in Queensland in the last 12 months, 814 more than at the same time last year.

"Domestic and family violence victims are being put at risk and clearly not enough is being done when more perpetrators are willing to breach protection orders to inflict further harm.

"The Not Now, Not Ever report stemmed from a taskforce that was established in 2014 by the former LNP Government, and the remaining recommendations need to be implemented as soon as possible before more women are put at risk of violence."
