Club Respect is an initiative of the Victorian Women’s Trust, its harm prevention entity, The Dugdale Trust for Women & Girls and NIRODAH, specialists in community education for violence prevention.
Club Respect has been forged by a close working relationship over a ten year period between Mary Crooks AO (Executive Director of the Victorian Women’s Trust) and Paul Zappa (founding Director of NIRODAH).
