Sandgate and Bracken Ridge Action Action Group (SANDBAG) has published a booklet with details on how to recognize violence, who to ask for support, contact numbers, safety measures, personal experiences and general advice. Such a publication has not previously been available. It is part of SANDBAG's Domestic and Family Violence program and will raise awareness that help is available, showing where to go to seek assistance. It will also help to prevent future domestic violence. Copies of the booklets have been distributed to 22 police stations, doctors' surgeries childcare and community centres within the Bracken Ridge Ward and some are also available from my office.
