Candles of Hope


If you’re unable to attend this year’s safe steps Candlelight Vigil at Federation Square, Wednesday 3rd May, there’s still an opportunity for you to honour a family member, friend or loved one - or even yourself -  who has a lived experience of family violence.   


By filling out this form or pressing the purple 'Dedicate a Candle of Hope' button, you can arrange to have a personalised Candle of Hope placed on stage during the Candlelight Vigil on your behalf. If you wish, you can submit the name you would like displayed on the candle (first names or nicknames only, for privacy reasons). 


If you haven’t been personally effected by family violence, you might like to arrange a Candle of Hope to pay tribute to all those who have lost their lives at the hands of someone who is supposed to love and care for them.


You can also choose to include a message of support for a loved one, or a general message to the thousands of women and children who are still suffering abuse. These messages will be de-identified and displayed on safe stepsFacebook and Instagram pages.


In order to help cover costs, we ask that you make a donation of $7.50 to safe steps Family Violence Response Centre for each Candle of Hope you would like. Any additional funds raised will support our vital work helping women and children who are escaping violence.


We will send you a photo of your personalised candle via email.
