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 can sometimes be issued within 24 hours of making contact with us. We work in close partnership with the police, solicitors and other support agencies (Refuge, Women’s Aid etc) to help victims 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!”

Excellent service. Prompt, efficient and clearly compassionate. Where a case fell through NCDV had an order granted through court. updates all the way. I cannot recommend enough what a fantastic service this is and what potentially life changing safeguarding they can provide.

I have been dealing with a victim of malicious communications. I made a referral to the NCDV and within 76 hours they have secured an order against the suspect preventing him contacting the victim. This is brilliant news and the victim is very happy! Excellent service.
