Since it was set up in 2002, the NCDV (National Centre for Domestic Violence) has been helping victims obtain emergency injunctions – such as an occupation order or a non-molestation order – regardless of race, gender, sexual orientation or financial situation. We aim to provide instant, effective protection against domestic violence and give advice to anyone who seeks it.
NCDV is an independent, self-funding organisation that works with police forces, Refuge, Women’s Aid, Victim Support and Citizens’ Advice Bureaux across England.
We provide a free, fast service to those who have experienced domestic violence. We specialise in offering legal support, making it possible to seek legal advice as well as court assistance. In practice, this usually means helping individuals to apply for an injunction at their local county court. To do this we use firms of local solicitors and trained volunteers who act as ‘McKenzie Friends’. This means we can offer an emergency service to victims of domestic violence whatever their financial circumstances, including those who do not qualify for legal aid.
