Since 1974, we have been at the forefront of shaping and coordinating responses to domestic abuse.
As a federation of over 180 organisations, we provide just under 300 local lifesaving services to women and children across the country.
We provide expert training, qualifications and consultancy to a range of agencies. This includes professionals working with survivors or those commissioning domestic abuse services. We award a National Quality Mark for services which meet our quality standards.
Our campaigns achieve change in policy, practice and awareness, encouraging healthy relationship and helping to build a future where domestic abuse is no longer tolerated.
The 24 Hour National Domestic Violence Helpline on 0808 2000 247 (run in partnership with Refuge) and our range of online services, which include the Survivors’ Forum and The Hideout, help hundreds of thousands of women and children every year.
