Please note that Respect Victoria is a statutory authority focussed on the primary prevention of family violence.

We are not a support agency for people experiencing family violence, and therefore, we are unable to provide professional expertise on personal issues, relationships or provide legal advice (like a psychologist, counsellor or lawyer is able to).

If you have experienced violence or sexual assault and require immediate or ongoing assistance, contact 1800 RESPECT (1800 737 732), to talk or chat online to a counsellor from the National Sexual Assault and Domestic Violence hotline. If you are concerned for your safety or that of someone else, please contact the Police in your state or territory or call 000 for emergency assistance.
