This is the single most impactive step forward in the protection of victims of domestic violence and their families. The speed at which orders can be secured, orders which are fair, necessary and proportionate, is unrivalled. These orders are the difference between a victim believing the police can help them, and knowing that not only can the police provide immediate response, NCDV will provide a professional, fair, and qualified service to protect our most vulnerable members of society. Thank you!”

A fantastic service with the updates and efficiency of the process. Very simple and fast also. Other organisations and agencies could learn a lot from the way this one is run.

Following the recent training for the DV non molestation orders I wanted to share some feedback with you. Since the training I have been handing the NCDV card out and putting referrals in which I'm sure most of you have.Last night I attended a DOM NON as her ex-partner was threatening to turn up at the house. There was no offences It was fairly low risk on the DASH and on scene we put a referral in to the NCDV as the victim agreed a NON MOL would be positive action for her but she was worried she could not afford it as she was working.Tonight on returning to work I received this email from NCDV saying they have already gone ahead and instructed solicitors to apply for the NON MOL which is fantastic! And has been actioned within 12 hours of us attending!!So it's clear the service works and I strongly recommend you use them and put the referrals in :-)I'm really pleased with their service and felt it is important to share this with you all.Many thanksTom
