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 very impress with the service my DV victim received when I referred her to NCDV and it only takes a few minutes to make the referral. Non molestation order with a couple of days. Thanks to all the staff at NCDV

I was very impressed with the level of dedication and service received by myself and my customer. My customer had been left feeling isolated with no where to turn and within 48 hours, it was like speaking to a different person who was empowered and confident to move on. Thank you for making my job rewarding!!!!

Very fast, professional service from all involved with my case.
The County Court Judge asked who prepared the paperwork. I explained it was the NCDV and he commented, ''It is VERY professional''.
Outstanding service. I thank you all from the bottom of my heart.

A big "thank you" for yet another success for my client. I know i can always rely on good advice and prompt action from the NCDV.
Your service is invaluable and your correspondence is second to none.

Thank you so much for your help in relation to this incident. To be completely honest, I wasn't expecting a great deal (rightly or wrongly). I have a great deal of experience with large organisations and referrals and calls 'falling through the gaps' but the updates you have provided, and the feedback I have had from Mrs B has been really positive. It is really good to know that just simply putting someone's name and contact details into an app on my phone, has led to a really outstanding leap forward for someone. Outstanding job!
