Sue & Lloyd Clarke have gone through any parent’s worst nightmare and they’re using their experience to help other families. They are the parents of Brisbane mum Hannah Clarke, who along with her three kids Aaliyah, Laianah and Trey, were murdered by Hannah’s estranged partner in 2020. In response, Sue & Lloyd created the charity ‘Small Steps 4 Hannah’ with a mission to HALT domestic & family violence through education, advocating for legal & social change and supporting people escaping violent situations.
In today’s important episode, Sue & Lloyd explain what coercive control actually is & how to spot the warning signs, why physical violence doesn’t need to be present for a relationship to be abusive, what to do if you suspect you or someone you love might be in an abusive relationship, and why it’s so significant that Queensland have introduced laws targeting coercive control.

In Steph & Laura’s catch up today, we reminisce about the days where prank calling someone as a kid was the most hilarious thing in the world – but Laura is shocked by one of Steph’s mischievous childhood pranks (surprising since Laura is now quite the prankster herself)!
Sydney Cassidy is the founder of Gym Girls Locker Room– a community of like-minded women looking to build strength and confidence at the gym where they can support, encourage and communicate with one another – which we are sure you’d agree aligns so perfectly with what we do at Kic.
In Steph & Laura’s catch up today we address the chat around the remake of Snow White, why it seems they are changing the entire storyline, why people up in arms about it, and what being a feminist actually looks like.
