This resource produced by the Queensland Centre for Domestic and Family Violence Research provides a ready reference on reliable recent statistics on Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander family violence with a particular focus on Queensland. It is primarily an overview of the ‘facts and figures’ of family violence impacting on Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples.
If you are working to end family violence in Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander networks and organisations or mainstream organisations this resource can assist in the preparation of community awareness campaigns, media releases and policy and funding submissions. As the report states, “ being clear about statistical information and the source of data will also enable workers in the field to critique reports and papers prepared by others”.
