The Hervey Bay Neighbourhood Centre believes in a safe workplace for all employees, volunteers and clients.

To support this, we have partnered with the Red Rose Foundation and have installed a Red Bench at the front of the Hervey Bay Community Centre.

The bench serves to raise public awareness by providing a visible reminder of the important issue of domestic violence in our community.

The Red Rose Foundation actively works to end domestic and family violence-related deaths in Australia and has launched the Red Bench Project across the nation to build awareness in communities. There are currently more than 160 benches installed across the country.

If you have been impacted by domestic or family violence please phone 1800 RESPECT.

Thank you to the Fraser Coast Regional Council for the installation of the bench.
