CWU members who have or know someone who has suffered domestic violence can now talk to the Union and get help to take legal action following the Union's backing of an organisation which offers legal action against purpetrators - free of charge!
Britain’s 200,000 member-strong Communication Workers Union (CWU) announced the launch of their new working partnership with leading domestic abuse legal protection organisation, NCDV which was formally initiated by the unanimous carriage of Motion 13A at the Union’s Annual Conference 2022 in Bournemouth on Sunday 24th April 2022
NCDV (National Centre for Domestic Violence) is a 100-strong not-for-profit, community interest company, based in Guildford, which helps victims and survivors of domestic abuse access rapid legal protection, principally in the shape of Non Molestation and other Court Orders.
Here you can watch part of the debate:
It is absolutely vital that people who have been affected by domestic violence receive the support and information they need to protect themselves and their children, and we are grateful to the NCDV that we can advertise these services not only to our membership but farther afield.
If perpetrators breach the terms of these civil Orders police have the power to arrest and charge them with a criminal offence for which they can be sent to jail upon conviction.
