Criminal law

If it was not for the advice given to me by Rights of Women, together with the online resources and information sheets, I would not have been as informed as I am now or in a position to report the violence I experienced to the police. I felt believed and supported which helped me emotionally. Legal back up is so important, thank you.”

We can advise you on:

  • sexual offences including rape and sexual assault
  • domestic violence, harassment and stalking
  • reporting offences to the police and the criminal justice system
  • criminal injuries compensation
