Red Bench Project­­™

TAKE A SEAT TO TAKE A STAND

The presence of a Red Bench in a public location aims to raise awareness of domestic violence and provide an opportunity for this important issue to remain visible.

READY TO ORGANISE A RED BENCH FOR YOUR LOCAL COMMUNITY?

If you would like to get involved, we are asking for local and state government and other community groups to organise a red bench. 

Download the information pack to get started today. 

Alternatively, you can make a donation towards a Red Bench. 

WANT TO FIND A RED BENCH IN YOUR LOCAL COMMUNITY?

To keep track of all the red benches across the country we are mapping them on a Google Map. 

 

If you see a Red Bench on your travels and it's not on our list below we would love you to take a picture and let us know.

Thank you to Isaac Regional Council for this video and their support of the Red Bench Project. Park benches in Isaac’s open spaces have been painted red to prompt conversations about ending domestic violence-related deaths in Australia.
