    The role of the Public Advocate is systemic advocacy which promotes and protects the rights and interests of adults with impaired decision-making capacity. The Public Advocate does not deal with individual cases.

    The functions include:
    •promoting and protecting the rights of groups of adults with impaired decision-making capacity
    •promoting the protection of the adults from neglect, exploitation or abuse
    •encouraging the development of programs that foster and maximise the adult's autonomy
    •promoting service and facility provision for the adults
    •monitoring and reviewing service and facility delivery to the adults
    •identifying issues in the systems that impact on adults, and works towards influencing appropriate change
    •conducting systemic advocacy through a variety of advocacy strategies including discussions, correspondence, committee representation, submissions, discussion and issues papers, forums and conferences.

    Queensland Domestic Violence Protection Orders
    What is a Protection Order?
    Protection orders seek to prevent further violence from occurring rather than dealing with previous violence by way of punishment. Protection orders come under civil law with the potential for criminal action if there is a breach of a protection order.
    Who does the Act cover?
    The act covers:
    People who are or have been legally married

    People who are or have been living together in a de facto relationship whether they be of the same or opposite sex

    People who are the biological parents of a child (whether or not they have lived together).

    Under the Domestic Violence (Family Protection) Act, the victim is know as the “aggrieved spouse” and the perpetrator of the violence is the “respondent spouse”. Relatives and associates of the abused Woman, including children, family friends and workmates who have been threatened, abused or harassed may also be protected. These people are known as “associates” and may be included under the Woman’s protection order if they have experienced “associated domestic violence”.

    Victim Assist Queensland
    Victim Assist Queensland is the new assistance scheme for victims of crime in Queensland. Victim Assist commenced on 1 December 2009, and replaced the current criminal compensation schemes of Criminal Offence Victims Act 1995 (COVA) and the Criminal Code 1899 (the Code).
    Victim Assist Queensland focuses on victim recovery by paying for, or reimbursing the costs of goods and services that a victim requires to help them recover from the physical and psychological effects of a crime. Victim Assist Queensland aims to provide a tailored, needs-based response, focusing on financial assistance and support for victims rather than just criminal compensation.

    Queensland Police Service ‘makes the call’ on domestic violence

    May 1, 2014 at 8:16 am

    In support of Domestic and Family Violence Prevention Month, Acting Commissioner of Police Steve Gollschewski is encouraging local communities to ‘make the call’ on domestic and family violence.

    Domestic and Family Violence Prevention Month is held each May and this year’s message is ‘Don’t let concern become regret – make the call to DVConnect’.

    The campaign encourages friends, family, colleagues and neighbours of people experiencing abuse in a domestic or family relationship to call the statewide DVConnect Womensline or Mensline to seek confidential advice about safety strategies and support.

    The Queensland Police Service is committed to working in partnership with the people of Queensland to provide professional policing services that will, over time, prevent and reduce the incidents of domestic violence in Queensland.

    Acting Commissioner Gollschewski hopes Domestic and Family Violence Prevention Month will raise community awareness of the social and personal impacts of domestic and family violence and the support available to those affected.

    “Police officers are often called to provide the first official response to domestic violence. We also focus on prevention and early intervention approaches in partnership with all sectors of the community to break the cycle of violence,” Acting Commissioner Gollschewski said.

    “This campaign highlights the important role friends, family and colleagues play in supporting people experiencing domestic and family violence to seek formal help. It enables people in the community to know the signs, recognize if someone they know is being abused and report on it.

    “Some people may think that domestic and family violence is a private matter or none of their business. However, if concerns result in serious harm they may regret not doing anything sooner.

    “Domestic violence often occurs behind closed doors, but we encourage people to expose it to the right authorities before it becomes too late,” Acting Commissioner Gollschewski said.

    Numbers to call include DVConnect Womensline 1800 811 811 and DVConnect Mensline 1800 600 636
