Extended hours service for those most at risk

We remain deeply concerned about women who may be trapped at home in light of Covid-19 and may be at risk. We are offering extended hours so that we can provide a service up to 10pm every weekday evening in order to maximise access to help to those at risk. We can work together with victims to provide briefer than usual evidence if it’s difficult for them to find the space to speak. We can  secure an emergency telephone hearing within a day where ever possible. 

Orders can include excluding perpetrators from the home or areas within the home and preventing abuse continuing.


We thought it might be helpful to gather together some of the essential guidance which has been produced over the last week in response to Covid-19 and we attach links to relevant resources here:

Here at Beck Fitzgerald we remain wholly dedicated to helping families stay safe. In addition to our extended hours we continue to operate business as usual.
