Respect Network Events.

Respect runs a programme of events for frontline workers, service managers, commissioners, funders, policy workers and researchers. Our events are practical and accessible, underpinning our three core strands of work: perpetrators of domestic violence, male victims of domestic violence and young people’s violence in close relationship; and support our ethos of high quality and safe service provision.

Our annual working with perpetrators networking event this year will focus on:

Behaviour change – offering opportunities for those ready, willing and able to change
Disruption – limiting a perpetrator’s ‘space for action’ to continue to abuse
Justice – ensuring no-one gets away with domestic abuse
Community – a grass-roots approach working together to end domestic abuse

Change that Lasts (CtL) England and Wales
Women’s Aid England and Welsh Women’s Aid developed the Change that Lasts model that supports professionals to provide a strength based, trauma informed response to women and children who have experienced domestic violence and abuse. Respect is working in partnership with Women’s Aid to expand the Change that Lasts approach in England and Wales, developing a parallel strand of work addressing perpetrators of domestic abuse. The aim is to intervene with perpetrators as early as possible, enabling behaviour change and increasing accountability with the safety and wellbeing of survivors and children the key priority.
