Domestic violence - it's not our game

 

Overview

The Domestic violence - it's not our game program aims to create positive role models in the Normanton community, reduce the prevalence of domestic and family violence, and create a safer community to live in. Normanton Building Safer Communities Action Team (BSCAT) have addressed domestic violence problems by creating the program and sponsoring the local Stingers Rugby League Team. The slogan was adopted by the team who also agreed to become role models in the community. The penalty for violence is exclusion from games and ultimately the team. Commercial advertisements are run on Imparja Television during the football season featuring the players and the message.
