TWO new brochures with diagrams were launched last Thursday targeting ethnic communities.

The brochures were launched in Cabramatta as part of the national anti-family violence campaign and highlight visual representation of actions to be taken when there is domestic or family violence.

They also contain important contact details for emergency and police help.

Fowler MP Chris Hayes joined with Neighbourhood Watch Australasia to launch the campaign, Community Safety is Everyone's Responsibility.

"With a reported 17 per cent of women and 6 per cent of men having been subjected to violence by a current or former partner it's clear domestic violence is a national issue that needs to be urgently addressed," Mr Hayes said.

Representatives of local police, Liverpool and Fairfield Migrant Resource Centres and Fairfield Council attended the launch.

They will help distribute the brochures.
