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!”

Quality streamline service that works to protect victims, and doesn't create any additional work for the police. Excellent, can't recommend it highly enough.

I am on a custody investigation and case progression team and in the last 6mnths have referred in excess of 20 people and some withdraw support, but of the ones that engage with the service, I have had nothing but praise. Also many a successful Non Mol. Thank you for making our jobs easier to support our DV victims.

I often use this service with fantastic results. They keep me up to date throughout the whole process and often get fantastic results that victims and police are both happy with.
