Accreditation

Respect has developed quality standards for services working with perpetrators and with male victims of domestic abuse.

Accreditation has been developed so that members of the public, including perpetrators and survivors, funders, commissioners and practitioners, can be assured of high-quality, safety-focused services. 


The Respect Standard – accreditation for work with perpetrators of domestic abuse

The Respect Standard is the nationally recognised quality assurance scheme for organisations working with perpetrators of domestic violence and abuse in the UK.

The Respect Standard sets out an evidence-based, safety-focused framework which identifies good practice and offers guidance for organisations to ensure that they are meeting the needs of service users safely and effectively, with the safety of survivors and their children at the heart.

Respect Male Victims’ Standard – accreditation for work with male victims of domestic abuse

Providing a service to male victims of domestic abuse brings with it a considerable responsibility: to ensure that this work is safe and effective and that it does not inadvertently contribute to the harm already experienced. 

The Respect Male Victims’ Standard has been developed so that service users, funders, commissioners, policy makers and referring agencies, can be assured that a service that is accredited provides high-quality, safety-focused interventions.
