Pro Bono legal advice for domestic abuse victims

Supporting you every step of the way

We provide pro-bono legal advice to men and women experiencing, or fleeing, domestic abuse. This advice is supported by our team of regulated barristers and solicitors.

We want this website to be an educational resource for legal options and advice when dealing with domestic abuse situations, which we will be updating on a weekly basis.

We’re passionate about helping our local community. If you’d also like to support us, you can volunteer your time to help. Learn more on our volunteer page here. Alternatively, you can donate to us here.

The Daisy Chain Project is a charity based in Worthing, West Sussex, UK with a UK-wide reach. They aim to help fight domestic violence by providing pro bono legal advice. The charity also wants to educate people about what constitutes domestic abuse, for example by writing a childrens’ book about domestic abuse.

Provision for special measures in family proceedings is made in Part 3A of the Family Procedure Rules 2010, which is supported by Practice Direction 3AA.

A Non-Molestation Order is a protective injunction which prevents unwanted contact from (most commonly) an ex-partner or family member. This unwanted contact can include things such as messages via text, messaging app, or social media, phone calls, appearances at the victim’s home or work address, and physical abuse amongst other things.

Domestic Abuse Information System (DAIS) app. We have designed an app for domestic abuse victims and developed it with fabulous Mark Webb.

We currently accept volunteers to help us with client triage and drafting non-molestation order applications under supervision.
