About Us

Supporting Positive Social Change

Positive Social Change is our 'why', that's why 100% of Her Platform profits are invested in funding primary prevention work within our communities to break the cycle of violence and de-stigmatise mental health concerns.

Since July 2021, Her Platform proceeds have been focused specifically on supporting primary prevention initiatives run by The Centre for Women & Co. including supporting new role focused primarily on creating engaging but educational resources for our community around mental health and prevention of violence within The Centre for Women & Co. team.

This funding contributes to resource production and distribution, digital storytelling pieces, impactful social media and more. The focus of this role ranges from young children all the way into older adulthood - it's never too late to learn nor is it ever too late to make a change.

Where to from here?

Primary prevention work complements responsive work. It aims to prevent violence from occurring by addressing risk factors and drivers of violence before it starts. Primary prevention helps shift social attitudes and behaviours in private and public life as well as in service systems that may tolerate, justify or excuse violence.

We hope to continue to make waves and joining with community members to breakdown barriers to disclosure, create safe spaces and end violence.

For us, this will look like:

  • Creating new resources.
  • Getting out into our community more and talking about domestic and family violence and mental health.
  • Spreading more positive social messaging.
  • Finding more allies within all generations. 
  • Collaborating with other organisations and individuals.
  • Continuing to train corporate and community organisations to respond to DFV and mental health in the workplace and in our communities.
