Respect accredits services doing safe, effective work with: 

  • Perpetrators of domestic violence 
  • Male victims of domestic violence 

To achieve accreditation, services working with perpetrators are assessed against the Respect Standard, and those working with male victims must meet the Male Victims’ Standard. Accreditation is valid for three years from the day the external accreditation panel met and decided that a service has met the standards. 

Respect accredits services that are assessed against the Respect Standard or the Male Victims' Standard, not entire organisations that may be delivering other services. A Respect-accredited service should not refer to the entire organisation as accredited.

If you are interested in accreditation for your service, please contact our accreditation team
