Respect Phoneline is a confidential helpline, email and webchat service for domestic abuse perpetrators and those supporting them.
We support men and women who are using abuse in same-sex or heterosexual relationships, from anywhere in the UK.
Respect Phoneline is for anyone who’s concerned about their use of violence and abuse towards their partner, and for those supporting them: friends or family members and Frontline Staff working with abusers, are welcome to call us for information and support.
We can support and advise people from anywhere in the UK.
Respect Phoneline does not provide information about anger management. The cause of domestic abuse is not anger. Anger management courses are not suitable help for those using domestic violence towards a partner. We provide information about domestic abuse intervention programmes, where these are available.
Respect Phoneline is funded by:
- the Home Office
- Ministry of Justice/MOPAC/London Community Foundation
- Government of Scotland
- Northern Ireland’s Department of Justice
