Safety cards a resource for DV victims

DOMESTIC violence victims can benefit from new safety cards developed by the Coordinated Community Response to Domestic and Family Violence.

Sponsored by Queensland Alumina Limited, the women and men's safety cards feature critical contact information for social, community, legal, police, drugs, alcohol and sexual assault services.

Sergeant Vicki Dredge, domestic and family violence co-ordinator for Capricornia Police, said while people didn't always want to speak to police, it was important they got help.

"The cards will be given out when police are called out to homes," she said.

"It is essential that people get the appropriate assistance."

Sergeant Dredge said the cards had also been made available through community groups and through the group's website to reach as many people as possible.
