Last week DV Connect, a 24-hour domestic violence telephone service operated in Queensland, reported receiving an unprecedented amount of calls in the four days following New Year's Day.

As the movement against domestic violence in Queensland communities gathers more momentum, Toowoomba businesses are taking a stand to build a community where violence against women is not acceptable.

Toowoomba businesses Unite in White against domestic violence

Following last month’s announcement of Toowoomba’s first White Night event presented by local strategic marketers Rigani, a number of businesses have offered their support.

Local graphic and web designer Simeon Griggs has provided his services and taken on a creative director role for the campaign. He wanted his business Tomoro to publicly get behind such a meaningful movement.

“Domestic violence needs to be spoken against in public to try and prevent it happening anywhere,” he said. “There’s no justification for reacting violently, no matter how many people are around.”

Hairdressers Edit Hair Lab have also signed up as a supporting partner and will soon be hosting a community White Wall where the community can pledge to stand up and speak out against domestic violence.

Master Stylist and Edit Hair Lab Director Christopher Mackie has seen first-hand how domestic violence affects the local community.

“Domestic violence is an issue in every walk of life and too many are suffering in silence. Team Edit were happy to offer any support we could to the White Night event.

If you are a business, organisation or individual who wants to stand up against domestic violence we ask you to contact us and lend your support also.
