QSuper answering the call on domestic violence

QSuper fund full-time Crisis Counsellor

 

QSuper have been helping DVConnect and Queenslanders wanting to escape domestic and family violence since 2016.

Up to 4,000 more victims each year have had their call for help answered thanks to a partnership between QSuper and Australia’s busiest domestic violence helpline, DVConnect. QSuper provided this much-needed financial support to help meet the ever-increasing demand on the services DVConnect provides.

According to DVConnect, demand since 2014 has risen dramatically. In 2014, the helpline would receive up to 150 calls per day, this has increased to at least 300 calls a day currently. The support from QSuper enables an extra telephone support officer to be employed for the helpline so they can answer more calls from Queenslanders in need.

With so many QSuper members supporting victims of domestic violence in their roles as police, nurses, emergency services, teachers, child safety and legal officers, QSuper wanted to mirror their commitment to improving the lives of vulnerable Queenslanders.

DVConnect offers a range of vital support services for men, women and children across Queensland, including free 24/7 telephone support, therapeutic counselling, and emergency transport and accommodation. If you’d like to find out more, visit DVConnect.org.
