Our role is not only to support women and give them their legal options, but also to push for the legal system to change and acknowledge the experiences of women and the complexities of the violence and abuse they suffer.

We have been involved in government consultations on legal issues affecting women for example Child Contact and Violent Parents and currently the Comments of the Criminal Courts Review by Lord Justice Auld.

We also work closely with key legal agencies for example the Police, CPS, the Courts, Court Welfare and Probation to feedback on good and bad practice and work towards positive changes within the criminal and civil justice system.
