Indigenous Family Violence – What Works?

Charlie King, No More Campaign

This presentation was delivered by Charlie King (No More Campaign Activist) at the recent ‘Queensland Indigenous Family Violence Prevention Forum – Language of Change, in Townsville. This forum was proudly hosted by QCDFVR and sponsored by Queensland Government.

Charlie King is an Indigenous Australian sport broadcaster and anti-family violence campaigner.  He is a Gurindji Australian, descendant of his mother, Ningardi, a Gurindji woman of central/western Northern Territory. Mr King has worked most of his life seeking to improve the lives of Indigenous people. He has held many positions in Human Services from 1979 to present. Amongst other positions, he has been a Youth Worker, a Juvenile Justice Worker, a Child Protection Officer in a Youth Service and a Juvenile Justice Manager. In 2006, Mr King consulted with over 30 Indigenous communities in the Northern Territory about the role of men in reducing the high levels of Child Protection and Family Violence. This consultation led to the founding of the NO MORE campaign – a campaign that called for “No More” by Indigenous male elders. The campaign called for all Australians to link up and say No More. This work and the campaign still consumes him even though he has been a radio broadcaster since 1994. Mr King was awarded an OAM in 2015 for Services to the Indigenous Community and to the Media.
