Information and advice to Frontline Workers
The Respect Phoneline offers information and advice to frontline workers who work with domestic violence perpetrators. Your call is confidential and anonymous.
How we help Frontline Workers
- Offer advice and guidance on working safely with domestic violence perpetrators; and we explain which interventions are safe and most effective.
- Explain why anger management courses, mediation and couples counselling are not appropriate interventions for domestic violence perpetrators.
- Provide contact details for local domestic violence perpetrator programmes and explain how they work.
“The call to the Respect Phoneline helped me gain clarity with a way forward to support my client. It provided me with a specialist organisation to signpost/refer my client onto to get the support he needs. It has supported me in feeling confident with my next steps with this client, and in feeling reassured with my counselling interventions with him so far. Thank you!”
