Join us in turning Queensland purple

We encourage you and your community to show your support and help raise awareness for elder abuse by turning Queensland purple during the week of and including the 15th of June.

In addition to wearing purple, a  number of local councils are showing their support by lighting a number of buildings, bridges and landmarks purple.

Do you have a business, shopfront, or space you’d like to turn purple? Let us know by getting in touch with the team at
