Make it Stop White Ribbon Sunshine Coast

Last year a number of like minded local people met to discuss the growing issue of domestic violence within our communities, in particular men's violence against women and children.

It was from these initial conversations that the Sunshine Coast White Ribbon committee was born. The mandate was to be at the forefront of the Sunshine Coast social movement, to stop domestic violence in our community and to support cultural change.

This committee has representation from the Queensland Police Service, Sunshine Coast Council, SunnyKids, Centacare SCOPE, University of the Sunshine Coast and Uniting Care Communities.

Chairperson of White Ribbon Sunshine Coast, QPS Superintendent Darryl Johnson hopes that publicising the Sunshine Coast committee will enhance local awareness.

“Whilst the community are aware of White Ribbon on a national level, locally there is a lack of awareness that a local committee exists,” Superintendent Johnson said.

“We recognise the downfall of this, including any local potential fundraising bypassing us and heading straight into the big coffers.”

National White Ribbon Day will be held on November 25 and the Sunshine Coast White Ribbon committee will continue to contribute to the global campaign to stop men's violence against women.

Is your organisation planning a White Ribbon event?

Details of your event can be sent to the committee via the Sunshine Coast Council site at CommunityDevelopment@sunshinecoast.qld.gov.au .

We look forward to connecting with you!
