The Red Rose Foundation has taken a significant lead in putting non-fatal strangulation on the public agenda. Prior experience of non-fatal strangulation increases six-fold the chances of becoming a victim of attempted domestic homicide, and seven-fold the chances of becoming a victim of domestic homicide (Glass et al., 2009). In September 2021, the Red Rose Foundation launched the Strangulation Trauma Centre (STC) to provide immediate and long-term support, counselling, and systems advocacy for women who have experienced non-fatal strangulation. The Queensland Department of Justice and Attorney-General (DJAG) commissioned the Queensland Centre for Domestic and Family Violence Research (QCDFVR) to evaluate a twelve-month trial of the Strangulation Trauma Centre (January 2022-January 2023). This trial is an Australian first.
