The Respect Phoneline is funded by the Home Office for England and Wales, from the Scottish Government for Scotland and from the Northern Ireland Office.

We welcome donations to allow us to offer more services to the public. Some of the things we want to achieve:

  • Fund more Helpline Sessional Workers to allow us to speak to more callers
  • Translate the pages of this website in various community languages
  • Compile a guide to setting up a domestic violence perpetrator programme for frontline workers in voluntary and statutory agencies
  • Commission an external evaluation of the Respect Phoneline (‘customer satisfaction survey’) and publish and distribute the relevant report
