What is Respect?

The Respect Phoneline is a national service for anyone who’s concerned about their use of violence and abuse towards their partner, and for those supporting them: concerned friends or family members, Frontline Workers assisting abusers, are all welcome to call us for information and support. The service is available by phone, email or webchat and all interactions are kept completely confidential. Calls are anonymous.


Respect advisors will ask about the circumstances that led to your call and the behaviours. This may seem personal and you do not have to disclose information if you are not comfortable. But, this is a process that allows the advisors to better understand your situation and tailor advice to help you in your situation.
