  • Homicide changes our world suddenly and heartbreakingly

  • Homicide.
    It's not a pretty word but it's real...

  • QHVSG is here for you...


QHVSG Ian Stewart APM - Commissioner of Police QPS

“As Patron of the Queensland Homicide Victims’ Support Group (QHVSG) I am honoured to welcome you to QHVSG’s online information portal. In a perfect world, there would be no need for QHVSG; however life is unpredictable and not always perfect. It is not until you are close to the families of a homicide victim that you have an appreciation of the lasting legacy caused by such a devastating act. I encourage you to explore the information contained within these pages and to reach out to QHVSG if you or someone you know has been affected by homicide”  Patron, Ian Stewart APM – Commissioner of Police, Queensland Police Service

QHVSG offers 24 hour emotional support, personal advocacy and information to all people affected by homicides that occur in Queensland, Australia, regardless of age, gender, culture or religion.

In partnership with family, friends and other community and government agencies, QHVSG provides responsive, practical and moral support to those left behind following homicide, led by the experiences of other living victims. We educate surviving victims, ourselves and all sectors of our community about the impacts homicide has on individuals and the community as a whole. QHVSG is the brand custodian for ONE PUNCH CAN KILL™ (OPCK) a nationally recognised community awareness campaign aimed at educating young people about the consequences of violence. QHVSG’s fundraising arm Daisy Chain Foundation manages all matters relating to corporate sponsorship, PR and events management for QHVSG and OPCK.

QHVSG uses a number of terms throughout this site that are reflective and symbolic of the homicide experience. Some of these include:
