White Ribbon Australia Workplace Accreditation

White Ribbon Australia (White Ribbon Workplace logo)

Our department is proudly accredited by White Ribbon Australia.

The White Ribbon Workplace Accreditation program recognises workplaces that promote respectful, safe and inclusive cultures by taking active steps to prevent and respond to violence.

As part of achieving and maintaining accreditation, our department has:

  • challenged the attitudes and behaviours that allow violence to occur
  • enhanced individual capability to recognise, prevent and respond to the issue of violence
  • improved or implemented new practices and procedures
  • encouraged individuals to take an active role in creating positive and safe workplaces.

Participation in events such as the Darkness to Daylight Challenge and White Ribbon Day, as well as partnering with women’s shelters, are just some of the many ways we are playing an active role in the community to address domestic and family violence.

We are proud of the steps we are taking and believe we can play a part in eliminating domestic and family violence in Queensland.

If you need support with domestic or family violence you can find assistance through these services. You can also download one of the many safety apps available through 1800RESPECT.

In an emergency, always call 000.
