CQ Capras to tackle issue of domestic violence

ANYONE heading to see the Capras play at Browne Park this weekend is sure to notice a sea of purple.

In partnership with the Women's Health Centre, Rockhampton, the Rockhampton Leagues Club Capras are planning to raise awareness for the prevention of domestic and family violence throughout the Capricornia region.

Staff from the Women's Health Centre, Rockhampton will be giving away purple balloons, bags, wrist bands and more ahead of the 6pm game.

There will also be staff available for people to talk to who would like more information about domestic and family violence or need to access support.

Domestic and family violence can be physical, sexual, emotional, psychological, spiritual or economic and or a combination of these.

There is no typical perpetrator of domestic and family violence… it can affect any family, from any walk of life at any time.

Gates to tomorrow's game open at 5pm.
