Gold Coast Weekly | Issue #16 | Corporate Plan

Scoring waves is fun, but like any sport, there are rules that surfers need to abide by to ensure they are safe and everyone gets a ride. Read up on surf etiquette on our website.

Issue #16: We want to know what's most important to you. In this week's edition, we're inviting you to have your say on our Corporate Plan, bringing you details on Domestic and Family Violence Prevention Month and introducing new all abilities bike workshops.

Domestic and Family Violence Prevention Month

Domestic and Family Violence Prevention Month

Throughout the month of May, the City acknowledges Domestic and Family Violence Prevention Month. This state-wide initiative aims to raise awareness of domestic and family violence and to send a clear message that domestic and family violence is not tolerated in our community. The DFVP Month theme for 2022 is 'All of us, together'.

Sadly, domestic and family violence continues to be a significant issue in our community. If you or someone you know is impacted by domestic or family violence, support is available:

Everyone has the right to feel safe. If you see or hear anything unusual, please call Policelink on 131 444 or in an emergency call 000 (Triple Zero).

For more information and resources, visit our website.

Introducing all abilities bike workshops

Introducing all abilities bike workshops

Everyone deserves the chance to ride a bike. Come and try a Freedom Wheels bike or trike around the Gold Coast.


We've partnered with Technology for Aging and Disability Queensland (TADQ) to provide a series of trial sessions to enable individuals to trial a Freedom Wheels bike or trike at a free community-based session.


Freedom Wheels provides bespoke bikes and trikes that meet the individual needs of a person, so that everyone can ride. They are custom designed with assistive technology and parts to suit the needs of people living with disability, regardless of capacity or ability.


These sessions will be suitable for children and adults, with TADQ providing several different bikes and trikes for you to ride. Bikes and trikes can be procured through the NDIS, and TADQ staff will be on hand to answer any questions.
