Red Rose Foundation™ At A Glance
The Red Rose Foundation™ is a national not for profit charity who works to address the damaging impact of domestic violence across our communities. We are especially concerned at the high number of domestic violence related deaths that occur each year through homicide and suicide. We also acknowledge that tragically, many of these domestic violence related deaths have many predictive elements and are largely considered preventable.
Our motto is #ChangeTheEnding
What We Do
The Red Rose Foundation’s work is focused on addressing high risk high harm domestic violence. We believe that so many of domestic violence deaths are both predictable and preventable.
Our work includes:
Providing counselling, groups and advocacy for women who have experienced non-lethal strangulation.
Providing Education and training both live and on-line
Community Awareness Activities
Strangulation Trauma Centre
Strangulation is one of the highest risk indicators to domestic violence related homicides and health related premature deaths. Red Rose Foundation identified there was a lack of information, resources and therapeutic support, available to women in Australia who had survived the trauma of non-fatal strangulation. We believe strangulation is a specific high risk form of violence that needs a specialised response.
While the Red Rose Foundation™ has been training and advocating on non lethal strangulation for several years, we were pleased that in May 2021, Australia’s first Strangulation Trauma Centre was officially opened by Queensland Attorney General Hon Shannon Fentiman.
