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 have used the National Centre For Domestic Violence various times and am a huge advocate of their services.The phone application makes the service to easy to use and if the applicant/victim engages the order is usually secured and updated on to PNC within a few days.They are brilliant at keeping officers updated too.An amazing resource for victims of domestic violence and a great help to the Police Force.

An incredibly fast and excellent service that provided a victim of domestic violence with an exit plan and protection from a violent offender that the criminal justice system simply could not offer her in her circumstances.
