Red Bench Project

Community Safety

The Red Bench Project is the first campaign to be rolled out as part of the Plan.

The Red Bench Project is an initiative of the Red Rose Foundation, to create a permanent reminder that domestic violence occurs within all communities.  The presence of a Red Bench in a public space aims to raise public awareness and provides an opportunity for this important issue to remain visible.  From September 2019, Red Benches have been installed in Kings Parade,  Machattie Park, Haymarket Reserve and the Kelso Community Hub.
