It is with great pleasure that the 2017 Forum Working Group and QCDFVR have opened the registrations for this year’s event.

Now is the time to book your airfares, organise your accommodation- and most importantly!- register HERE to avoid missing out on the Queensland Indigenous Family Violence Prevention Forum.

In its thirteenth year, once again the Forum will bring together Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander practitioners from around the state to celebrate the work being done to end domestic and family violence.  You can sneak a peek at the program HERE.

This is a great chance to network with others who are working with victim/ survivors, families and children affected by this violence.  As well this year, as in other years, you will be able to hear about programs for perpetrators of domestic and family violence.  The big news this year is the re-location of the Forum to Cairns.  (You can learn more about the venue HERE, by the way.)

The Forum is now an established highlight in the calendars of workers from a range of sectors.  However, don’t take our word for it… in 2016 this is what our guests said:
