Graham House Community Centre was established in 1988, and provides people within the South Burnett an opportunity to access a range of Services from one location. These Services range from Family Support Services to provide practical and emotional support to families in our community who are experiencing difficulty through to Community Transport that provides transport to frail aged members of our Community.
All of our services are provided free of charge to clients with the exception of Transport, while we receive some government funding we rely on gifts and fundraising to expand and develop our services to reach out to more people in need of support and help.

How will the funds be used?

• Research reveals that poverty is growing in Australia with an estimated 2.5 million people or 13.9% of all people live below the internationally accepted poverty line, with your assistance Graham House will be able to assist families to help meet daily needs.

• Public transport is limited in the South Burnett and it can be difficult for people with a disability or a frail older person, your gift can allow our service to continue to provide direct transport so they can visit their doctor or go shopping.

• In today's busy world more people feel isolated and lack opportunities to connect with others. Graham House enhances community participation through such programs as Community Kitchen and Community Garden, providing people with opportunities to build relationships with each other and across the community.

MEDIA RELEASE Attorney-General and Minister for Justice and Minister for Training and Skills The Honourable Yvette D'Ath Expert board to review domestic violence deaths The Palaszczuk Government has taken another important step in its actions to tackle domestic and family violence, with the appointment of the Domestic and Family Violence Death Review and Advisory Board, chaired by State Coroner Terry Ryan. Attorney-General and Minister for Justice Yvette D’Ath today announced the 12 members of the new board, established as part of the Government’s commitment to implement the recommendations of Dame Quentin Bryce’s report titled Not Now, Not Ever: Putting an End to Domestic Violence in Queensland. Mrs D’Ath said the board would play an important review and advisory role in ensuring government and community services protected the victims of domestic and family violence while holding perpetrators accountable. “Our ultimate goal is to prevent these senseless, tragic, violent deaths,” said Mrs D’Ath. “The sad reality is that despite the best efforts of police, community groups and government, they continue to occur. When they do, we must learn what we can to ensure we stem that awful tide of violence." The Domestic and Family Violence Death Review and Advisory Board has been established under the Coroners Act 2003 with additional funding of $2 million over four years provided in the State Budget. The board will: • review domestic and family violence deaths in Queensland, including deaths that occurred before the Board was established and deaths that are still being investigated under the Coroners Act; • analyse data and apply research to identify patterns, trends and risk factors relating to domestic and family violence deaths in Queensland; • conduct research to prevent or reduce the likelihood of domestic and family violence deaths; • compile systemic reports into domestic and family violence deaths, that identify ways to reduce the likelihood of domestic and family violence deaths in Queensland; • recommend improvements to legislation, policies, training and other matters for government and community groups to help tackle domestic violence; and • monitor the implementation of those recommendations. Mrs D’Ath said the board’s membership reflected the diversity of the Queensland community from the fields of domestic violence services, health and the justice system. “Board members bring a wealth of experience and insight across key sectors,” said Mrs D’Ath. They have received their letters of appointment this week, effective immediately for a term of three years.” Non-government members Dr Kathleen Baird is the Deputy Chair of the Domestic and Family Violence Death Review and Advisory Board.
