Respect Young People Programme (RYPP) – Early intervention for families and teen relationships
This programme focusses on interventions with young people who use violence and abuse in close relationships. This includes relationship abuse, adolescent to parent violence or abusive behaviour within the family such as sibling abuse or young parent abuse. Our work is mainly targeted at ages 10 – 25 years, but we also give consideration to younger children.
We don’t offer direct services to families affected by young people’s violence and abuse. Respect’s Young People Programme supports Frontline Workers working with these families.
Respect Young People’s Toolkit
Access to the online Young People’s Toolkit is available to everyone who has attended Respect Young People’s 5-Day Training Course.
The five day RYPS Toolkit Training allows participants to:
- Develop their skills around working with young people
- Consider programme delivery criteria
- Outline an appropriate intervention structure
- Provide information in relation to case management
The training has been delivered nationally to hundreds of practitioners across the UK. Resources include an on-line manual, activity database and access to a downloadable DVD. The training is fully interactive utilising a skills-based approach.
The RYPS Toolkit ‘Working with Young People Using Violence & Abuse’ is a comprehensive resource for professionals and is accessible via our RYPS Toolkit Training. The toolkit equips practitioners to carry out successful interventions using a range of therapeutic and practical tools to work with young people in relation to their abusive behaviours, to whomever it is directed. The RYPS Toolkit was launched, piloted and evaluated in five diverse projects across the UK between 2008 and 2011.
The online toolkit can be accessed by everyone who has attended Respect Young People’s 5-Day Training Course : http://toolkit.respect.uk.net/toolkit
The Toolkit is not made available to frontline workers and practitioners who haven’t attended the 5-day Training course.

Adolescent to Parent Violence and Abuse
The Respect Young People’s Programme (RYPP) addresses adolescent to parent violence. Originally funded under the Realising Ambition programme to test replication and effectiveness it produced statistically significant improvement in young people’s mental wellbeing and behaviour.
“Analysis of these outcomes indicates a statistically significant improvement in nearly all areas, including of emotional wellbeing, conduct, pro-social behaviour, and overall mental health – with only hyperactivity and peer relationships showing no change according to children’s self report, but positive change according to parent-report. Of particular note is the overall improvement in mental health and behaviour of young people, which two thirds of parents reported as being improved by the end of the programme. Additionally, parent reported scores within the “high need” threshold range of mental health and conduct problems reduced by 23% and 27% respectively, which is particularly positive given the focus of the programme on addressing children’s violence against their parents”. — Social Research Unit 2016

Information about organisations working with Child to Parent violence list:
Sibling Abuse is often a much under-reported dynamic of domestic abuse. Respect does not currently provide specifically targeted resources to address this issue, but it is addressed within the wider remit of the RYPS Toolkit and associated training.
YOUNG PARENTS ABUSE
Many adolescent or young parents (16 – 25) who may be abusive to a partner or children are often unable to access appropriate support within adult service provision. Respect is currently reviewing interventions nationally and is seeking to adapt and develop suitable resources for these clients. Many of the activities included in the RYPS Toolkit are currently effective with this group.
