Domestic abuse can affect anyone. Respect works with the cause of the problem, the perpetrator, so that victims can be safer and abusers offered meaningful opportunities to change.
The work we do on Respect Phoneline takes place alongside other activities Respect carries out:
- We train organisations and Frontline Workers to work with perpetrators and have the skills to support them change;
- Manage the accreditation of domestic abuse interventions with the Respect Standard, nationally recognised quality assurance scheme;
- Carry out research in collaboration with reputable academics, so that we continue to develop the learning and knowledge base for perpetrator work. We recently published “Perpetrators in the early stages of help-seeking” Burrell, S.R. and Westmarland, N. (2019)
- We advise the Government, Local Authorities, Commissioners and other organisations on issues related to perpetrator work.
- Through the Drive Partnership that Respect, Safe Lives and Social Finance are part of, we launched A call to Action to the Government for a domestic abuse perpetrator strategy in England and Wales
