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've been referring to NCDV for a number of years, their sevice has always been excellent. In this case I referred a client on Sunday evening, by Tuesday afternoon she had her injunction. Thank you.

My organisation involves long, endless amounts of paperwork and it is very refreshing to use a service that has such a simple form to fill in which can have such a big impact. It is quick and easy, just what I need. Only issue is I can never do a referral via the phone app as it always comes up with an error msg. (Neil has been advised to update his app and it all works fine now!)
