Respect is the UK membership organisation for three specialist areas of work within the domestic violence sector. RESPECT develop, deliver and support effective services for:
Male and female perpetrators of domestic violence
Male victims of domestic violence

Phoenix Domestic Abuse Services are currently a member of RESPECT and are accredited to the Safe Minimum Standards. This year we will be aiming to achieve full accreditation.
In November 2017 Cath James (CEO – Phoenix Domestic Abuse Services) and Lidia Davies (Perpetrator Officer) were thrilled to attend the Westminster Launch of the new standards.
Staff also attended the Welsh launch at the Senedd in December 2017 (below)
