Resource: The Handy Guide to identifying the red flags of coercive control

We know that domestic and family violence is one of the leading causes of homelessness for women, and that controlling behaviours are some of the earliest and most insidious signs of domestic violence, but the signs can be difficult to spot.

Launched by the Lady Musgrave Trust and partners, the Red Flag Effect campaign helps identify these red flags and encourages people to check out an online handy guide for more information, and connection to services and organisations that can support them.

The Handy Guide website is an information and service directory for Queensland women in need, and answers common questions around leaving relationships, what to do after leaving, engaging friends to help, and housing information for older women – amongst many other resources and emergency contacts.
