The legal system can be frightening and isolating for victims of domestic violence. Many women do not understand their rights, and need support to attend court safely and testify against their abuser.

Our expert team of independent advocates work with women who are at the highest risk of serious harm or homicide. They act as a woman’s ‘eyes and ears’ supporting her through every step of the legal process.

Our law parcel includes:

  • Supporting women to attend court safely
  • Helping women to write witness statements and give evidence
  • Requesting special measures e.g. screens to conceal clients in court so they don’t have to face their abuser
  • Emotional support

“I don’t think I would have even gone through with the court and everything. I would have pulled out if Refuge hadn’t come on board, because I felt under a lot of pressure and unsupported by the police.” Bianca*
