Connect and Respect is a state-wide Family and Domestic Violence Intervention Service for court mandated offenders.
This behaviour change program is specifically designed to work with men and women who have been charged with family and domestic violence offences against a partner, child or family member. In addition to working with individuals who have been charged with acts of abuse and violence, this program also seeks to engage with and support those who have been impacted. Victim advocacy and support is central to this service.
Anglicare WA’s part of Connect and Respect focuses on rehabilitation and includes mandated men’s behaviour change groups, and individual delivery in community and prison settings.
Connect and Respect is only available to individuals who have been referred by the Department of Justice. All people participating in this program are currently under the supervision of the department.
