Uniting Toowoomba’s health specialists & providers against domestic & family violence (DFV)

Health Action Group

Addressing the health implications from DFV

Our Health Action Group is comprised of passionate members who are committed to making a difference by informing the community of the negative impact domestic violence (DV) has on physical and mental wellbeing. 


This group works towards this goal by organising events, implementing new projects, and providing spaces for people who experience to talk about gaps they experience when accessing services.

The Health Action Group helps guide people who are experiencing violence or people using violence with the right service providers to help make positive changes in their relationships.
