Who we are

We are a division of Richmond Fellowship. For over 25 years, DVIP have been helping to make women and children safer. With services across London, we work to stop domestic violence and to reduce the harm it causes to women, children and families.

We are known as an authority in the UK in providing specialised domestic violence services. The Home Office has cited DVIP as a model of good practice, and the Office of the Mayor of London has recognised our contribution to women’s safety. We’re proud that our Violence Prevention Programme is one of the first in the UK to be fully accredited by Respect, the accreditation body for domestic violence perpetrator programmes in the UK.

What we do

The DVIP Family Courts Team are a small team of specialists who offer expert domestic violence assessments in the public family courts, including cases being worked under the Public Law Outline (PLO).

The Family Courts Team provide the following types of assessments:

  • Risk Assessments
  • Vulnerability Assessments of victims
  • Joint Risk and Vulnerability Assessments
  • Final Reports, following completion of treatment programmes
  • Family Member Assessments of third party carers
