Welcome to National Centre for Domestic Violence

The National Centre for Domestic Violence (NCDV) provides a free, fast emergency injunction service to survivors of domestic violence regardless of their financial circumstances, race, gender or sexual orientation.

Our award-winning service allows anyone who has recently suffered or been threatened with domestic violence to apply for an emergency court injunction.

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!”

I was really impressed about the fantastic response received regarding a recent referral made to the NCDV. The process was easy, quick and straight forward and a Non-molestation order was granted within a week. I have promoted this to other colleagues as their service is exceptional.

First rate. My latest referral to NCDV was promptly contacted, represented and an order obtained at court. I have been updated at every stage. It is a great shame that no public service is able to offer such an efficient service. Always very impressed

I have used NCDV a couple of times & they are always prompt & helpful with victims. We've been kept up to date with the process, and an injunction was served on this occasion. Very quick & easy process. Thanks NCDV!

Sent a referral through and it was actioned the very next day, kept up to date and an injunction has been served. Very quick process and easy to use system. Wish I knew about this a long time ago.
