Run or walk to end domestic and family violence this May - Registrations are now open for Darkness to Daylight 2024

Challenge DV is a social enterprise on a mission to end domestic and family violence.

We do this through market-leading workplace programs, impactful strategic partnerships and powerful events and advocacy that unite a community no longer able to accept abuse or violence of any form. Find out how we make an impact.

Our workplace programs empower businesses to be part of the solution by educating managers and staff to recognise the signs of domestic and family violence and respond appropriately.

Through our strategic partnerships, we connect people and workplaces across government, businesses, charities, frontline services and the community to create change and raise awareness for domestic and family violence prevention.

Through advocacy, we use our profile and harness the insight and voices of our community to keep domestic and family violence prevention on the local and national agenda.

We raise funds through events, such as the Darkness to Daylight challenge, and activities that we reinvest into research and prevention programs that make an impact to workplaces and communities across Australia.

Our history

Our story began in 1999 when our Founder, Dianne Jeans, was Chair of Brisbane City Council’s Women’s Advisory Council during Lord Mayor Jim Soorley’s tenure. He believed that “if one woman wasn’t safe at home, the city wasn’t safe” and, in response to the growing domestic and family violence crisis, Dianne began exploring ways to address this in the local community.
