Amanda Lee-Ross

Amanda Lee-Ross is the CEO of the Cairns Regional Domestic Violence Service in Far North Queensland.
The Cairns Regional Domestic Violence Service (CRDVS) began its life back in 1987 when it grew from a local grass roots group called the Domestic Violence Action Group. In 1992 we became one of the first four Regional Domestic Violence Services to receive funding from the Queensland Government. We use our specialist knowledge and skills to empower and assist those affected by domestic and family violence by providing counselling, crisis support, advocacy and court support and work to prevent domestic and family violence in the community by awareness raising events, community education, professional training and the coordination of sector responses to domestic and family violence. 
The organisation’s vision is ‘Making a difference – bringing domestic and family violence to an end’ and its values are Access and Equity; Respect; Integrity and Learning
