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!”

Thank you for your prompt actions.I had a mother of three children whose partner was refusing to leave her alone but not committing criminal offences. As a continued victim I believe that she was feeling unsupported and as a result reluctant to support any possible police actions. After a short referral from myself a non molestation order is being issued. This will help the police and her as we can now action even the slightest infringement her partner makes. Ensuring her and her children's safety.What a brilliant service.

I made a referral a week ago and already a non-molestation order is in place. The resident is so happy and said the barrister was brilliant. I am really pleased with this and how I have been kept up to date. A great service making a big difference.
