What We Do

The National Centre for Domestic Violence 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!”Sussex Police
