Welcome to our domestic abuse resources area.

We have provided a number of useful links for external sources that can assist in understanding the issues that surround domestic abuse.

Our Services:

We support both men and women who are concerned about their behaviour in their relationships, to understand this and make positive changes.

Men are supported through our Bridging to Change Programme.

Women are supported through out Women's Behaviour Change Programme.

If you wanted information on how we can help, click the links above or call us on 0161 873 1100 (ext. 2).


If you are concerned about your behaviour, you can contact Respect via their helpline, email or webchat. They help both male and female perpetrators, in heterosexual or same-sex relationships who are looking for help to stop.
