In 2010 Rape and Domestic Violence Services Australia (RDVSDA was funded to establish 1800RESPECT, a hotline that provides specialist domestic violence and sexual assault counselling through telephone and online counselling.

It is universally promoted by media, politicians and business when talking about domestic violence and sexual assault.
