While the Home Office crisis grant funding runs out on the 31 October, Respect has secured additional funding to continue operating extended opening hours on the Men’s Advice Line and Respect Phoneline for 1-30 November, thanks to the Scottish Government.
ALDCS, London council, Respect and SafeLives have secured funding from MOPAC to support the delivery of an early interventions programmed for those who are at risk of perpetrating domestic abuse within families already in contact with social services.
Designate Domestic Abuse Commissioner for England and Wales, Nicole Jacobs, joined Respect's accredited members' forum to find out more about our work and what we think her office’s next steps should be.
As the government works on its Comprehensive Spending Review 2020, we’ve joined 25 other sector organisations in writing to the government to call for investment in responses to domestic abuse and sexual violence, that are equal to the enormous scale of the challenge.
The Respect Phoneline is launching a new social media campaign on the message #Abuse. Let’s #DrawTheLine to encourage perpetrators of domestic abuse to recognise their abusive behaviours and to reach out for support to change.
