Host of The Chase and Co-host of Weekend Sunrise, Andrew O’Keefe is a household name in Australian entertainment.

O’Keefe is a past chairman of the White Ribbon Foundation in Australia, an organisation dedicated to the prevention of violence against women. He was one of the founding members of the campaign in Australia and has been an ambassador since 2004.

The campaign is active in schools, workplaces, sports clubs, councils and other community organisations, and seeks to rally men and boys as leaders in the fight against violence.

As a result of his work with the Foundation, O’Keefe was appointed to the inaugural National Council for the Prevention of Violence Against Women, which drafted the report Time for Action: Australia’s National Plan for Reducing Violence Against Women and their Children on behalf of the federal government.




Anti Violence Advocate Charlie King has been the driving force for the NO MORE initiative that supports a zero tolerance to domestic vioence in sports. Clubs are encouraged to develop their own Domestic Violence Action Plans and the initiative has taken off in the NT with great interest from clubs right across Australia.

Earlier this year, Mr King was presented with his Medal of the Order of Australia (OAM) acknowledging his lifetime commitment to promoting an anti-domestic violence message right across the Northern Territory.




A White Ribbon Ambassador, Commissioner Kershaw was instrumental in the NT Police Force achieving White RIbbon Workplace Accreditation, recognising workplaces that are taking active steps to prevent and respond to violence against women.

Earlier this year, Commissioner Kershaw established the first White Ribbon NT Committee, dedicated to tackling family violence in the NT and supporting events such as the White Ribbon, Black Tie Ball to fund future DV support initiatives.
