Respect run two helplines, the Respect Phoneline and the Men’s Advice Line.

The Respect Phoneline is an anonymous and confidential helpline for men and women who are harming their partners and families. This helpline provides specialist advice to help people change their behaviours and support for those working with domestic abuse perpetrators. Check out the Respect phone line.

The Men’s Advice Line is a confidential helpline for male victims of domestic abuse and the frontline workers supporting them. This helpline offers advice and emotional support to men who experience abuse, and signpost to other vital services that help keep them and their children safe

Some of our other activities include:

• Running accreditation for domestic abuse prevention programmes. Respect Accreditation is the benchmark for high quality interventions with perpetrators.

• Delivering training programmes for frontline workers so they have the skills and the knowledge to support domestic violence perpetrators, male victims and families with teenagers who use violence.

• Hosting 3 annual conferences on domestic abuse perpetrator work, male victims work and young people using violence and abuse in their close relationships.

Respect believe that prevention is the best solution: The Young People’s Programme is a pioneering project for young people who use violence and abuse in close relationships. This can include relationship abuse, adolescent to parent violence or abusive behaviour within the family e.g. sibling abuse, young parent abuse.

They run a training programme for front line workers so they have the skills and the knowledge to support domestic violence perpetrators, male victims and families with teenagers who use violence.

Each year Respect hold 3 conferences: one is about domestic violence perpetrator work, another about male victims work and the third one is focused on young people’s violence.
