Responding to the COVID-19 pandemic, we have been collaborating with our sector partners to ensure that victim and survivor’s safety remains a top priority. To achieve this, we will continue to hold perpetrators to account.

Respect's Helplines are running as normal. Our team have made plans to meet increased demand and have reviewed the advice they give to service users, so their needs are better met in the COVID-19 context. Please refer to our helpline websites for more information www.respectphoneline.org.uk and www.mensadviceline.org.uk

The Respect Phoneline has launched the #NoExcuseForAbuse campaign. It's aimed at perpetrators of domestic abuse and our key message is that the lockdown is not an excuse for abuse. The campaign is run on Respect's social media accounts. For more information contact [email protected] 

We are working closely with our members, to support them through this challenging time. For any concerns about Respect member services, contact [email protected]

We are developing resources for the sector and will be reviewing these on an ongoing basis.
