Candlelight Vigil 2023 Toolkit

Posted On: May 1, 2023

On the first Wednesday of May each year, people across Australia light a candle to remember the women and children who have died as a result of domestic and family violence.

The Candlelight Vigil is a safe space for members of the public to come together in honour of the lives lost, to grieve, reflect and share messages of hope for change.

The GWH Candlelight Vigil Toolkit is designed to assist you and your organisation to:

  • Understand what the annual Candlelight Vigil is about
  • Access current Australian and Gippsland-specific family violence statistics
  • Learn how you can participate in the annual campaign
  • Download 2023 Candlelight Vigil marketing materials
  • Find a lead partner for support and collaboration opportunities

The 2023 Annual Candlelight Vigil will be held on Wednesday 3rd of May.
