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!”

Great referral tool in incidents of domestic abuse. I spoke with a lady yesterday who wanted some advice on seeking an injunction/order to protect herself and her children from her ex partner, due to a conflict over child contact. Within 2 hours of making the referral I had an update saying the matter had been allocated to one of their staff and they were making contact with the female. By the end of the day I was updated that the paperwork for a Non Molestation order had been completed and they would arrange to meet the victim at court. Very impressed with the service and am sure victim will sleep better knowing things are in hand.

Just received a call from a very happy Mum I work with who has a young baby to say she's received a non-molestation order against her ex-partner. I cannot thank and praise this service enough as I only referred her on Wednesday and by Friday she has received the order which is just amazing.Easy, fast, effective and most importantly completely proportionate to the worries I and the Mum had around the ex-partner in question.Will recommend the service at our next group meeting where all the Social Workers meet together.Excellent! Can't recommend enough. Used a couple of times now for different families, and also great for giving advice to those parents I work with who are not quite sure and want to know a bit more about the court processes involved etc.
