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 service allows anyone to apply for an injunction within 24 hours of first contact (in most circumstances). We work in close partnership with the police, local firms of solicitors and other support agencies (Refuge, Women’s Aid etc) to help survivors obtain speedy protection.

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!”

The Assist database search is easy to use, helping me manage risks around one of my offenders. This information was only held here and not on PNC or our local crime database ! Thank you.

Referring a victim directly is quick and easy. It ensures that we have took all steps to help the victim as the majority of the time the victims don't follow up on advice given.Applied for the order on Friday morning, non-mol order issued at court by lunchtime Wednesday.Victim was very happy with the service provided.Definitely recommend!
