Allison Baden-Clay’s parents have broken their silence for the first time, saying the pain of their daughter’s loss five years ago at the hands of her husband “doesn’t go away."

Now on the front line battling domestic violence at the first inaugural fundraising launch for the Allison Baden-Clay Foundation, Geoffrey and Priscilla Dickie said it was “about time” they spoke about their daughter.

“It has been five years but the hurt and the pain doesn’t go away with the loss of your daughter, but we are very grateful to the people who have put so much time and effort into creating a foundation,” Mrs Dickie said.

Her husband, Geoffrey, spoke in front of a crowd of 165 people at the launch, saying the question he always gets asked is, “how are the girls?”

“We always tell them that they are doing fine. They are loving school and they are loving all the activities they do. They are very strong and they get on with life,” he said.

“Today was fantastic it’s about making awareness of domestic violence and making sure people know what it’s all about, keeping in mind Allison’s legacy and raising money for her foundation,” Mr Dickie said.

“She was a lovely girl, you’ve only got to ask anybody that came in contact with her, and of course with the girls she nurtured them and made them do the right thing and that’s why they are so strong, they’re just getting on with life and thriving.

“After five years it’s about time we told everyone what Allison’s like and supported her and even though she’s not here with us we miss her very much.

"It's been a long journey and people have helped along the way and assisted us. We wouldn't be anywhere without the communities help."

More than $22,000 was raised for the Allison Baden-Clay Foundation, with the money to go to anti-domestic violence education.

Gerard Baden-Clay is serving life in prison for murder. His appeals have been exhausted.
