Welcome to National Centre for Domestic Violence

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!”

Great service. Very efficient at supporting clients impacted by domestic violence. Their speedy response is paramount in DV cases and it was brilliant that my client was able to obtain an injunction that she had been attempting to obtain for months. Very grateful for this support!

Thanks to the NCDV, I secured an order for myself and the family home which has given stability to me and my children. I cannot thank NCDV enough for their support in securing the orders without which I would have been homeless with two children.

Excellent service, for the victim and for this organisation.Two fold should the perpetrator breach the paperwork can be located in quick time to allow a decision to be made without having to bail suspect thus prolonging sentence.

Superb and quick response to referral. I have really appreciated being kept up to date with the progress of getting the order in place. It will motivate me to do it more often.
