Respect works across three key thematic areas running several projects across these.
We work to prevent harm by working with perpetrators of domestic abuse in collaboration with organisations from across the sector. Our interventions range from early intervention to work with high harm perpetrators as we recognise that a range of interventions are needed to respond to the difference in perpetrators.
Another focus area is around young people, from advancing work with young people who use violence and abuse in their close relationships to child welfare responses to children impacted by domestic abuse, we work to keep children and young people safe and prevent early abusive behaviours.
Our third focus area further specialist support for male victims of domestic abuse and includes offering training, hosting national conferences and the Respect Male Victims’ Standard and a toolkit for frontline workers.
