Hands bring Hope to raise awareness of Domestic Violence
Domestic Violence shatters lives.

The impact on children is debilitating and often long term.

The Redcliffe Area Youth Space and Chameleon Housing are dedicated to working with the victims of abuse, assault, domestic violence and other horrific issues; both organisations actively support other disadvantaged young people as a part of their daily work.

They will be hosting two significant initiatives:

The annual "Hands of Hope" Pledge Wall


The first initiative is the annual "Hands of Hope" pledge wall where any member of the community can come to a specified location and make a symbolic pledge to take a stand against domestic violence.

You are invited to come along and put your name and handprint on this giant canvas that will be displayed in the Redcliffe Office of Moreton Bay Regional Council at later date.

The "Hands of Hope" wall pledge is free and will be ready for your hand prints from May 12. So show your support for the 'Hands of Hope' and make a stand against Domestic Violence.

To find out more about the wall, times and dates, go to the Redcliffe Area Youth Space Facebook page and hit "like". Regular updates will be posted.

The "Together We Can" Fund

The second initiative is the "Together We Can" fund which supports parents who are encountering financial hardship as a result of escaping from domestic violence. This initiative is about the children of those parents and it will fund things like:
specialised trauma counselling for any child exposed to violence and abuse;
school excursion costs for those children;
sporting fees; and
other special items that help make the life of a child the special experience it should be.

The Redcliffe Area Youth Space and Chameleon Housing hope to bring a bright spark of normality back into the lives of families torn apart by violence.

Every cent donated will be spent only on children in need who have experienced some type of abuse, or who have been involved in a domestic violence incident. No administrative fees will be taken out of the fund.

To make a donation to the "Together We Can" fund contact Jarryd from the Redcliffe Area Youth Space on 3283 8769.

Any donation above $2.00 is eligible for a tax receipt for donating to a registered charity.


The "Reach Out" Domestic Violence Awareness Breakfast 30 May

The "Reach Out" Domestic Violence Awareness Breakfast is a partnership between Uniting Care, the Redcliffe Youth Space, Chameleon Housing and Moreton Bay Regional Council that hopes to inspire local, state and federal politicians and big businesses to do more to support organisations that work with the survivors of domestic violence - in particular children affected by Domestic Violence.

This invitation only Breakfast Event aims to build awareness amongst politicians and business leaders about the issue of domestic violence in the community of Redcliffe. It will also mark the official launch the annual "Hands of Hope" pledge wall and the "Together We Can" fund.

For more information on the "Reach Out" breakfast, contact Chris from Uniting Care on 3867 2510.
