Volunteer your time

Legal Advisors

Qualified & trainee lawyers/solicitors are essential to our operation. Working alongside a number of legal firms creates resilience and support for our legal advisors. For trainee solicitors a contribution of 3 or 4 hours a month is often an opportunity for exposure to family law cases where domestic violence is prevalent. Some clients will approach firms independently for legal aid or paid services following their Flag DV intervention.

Fundraising participants

From coffee mornings to 10k walks & raffles, we take part in fundraising events of all types. Many hands make light work and whatever you feel you can lend your hand to we will welcome you to an event with open arms. Keep an eye on our social media & news pages for upcoming events.


The back bone of the charity. Meeting once a month & contributing a few hours of ‘homework’ in-between, the responsibility of a trustee board is to monitor operations, consider our financial position and bring ideas to business strategy.

Our Trustee Board demonstrates diversity in its expertise & knowledge. We are actively recruiting new trustees to strengthen and support our existing team – people whose life experiences and/or work experience provide expertise to support our organisation’s charitable aim and make a positive difference to the lives of those experiencing domestic abuse throughout Berkshire, Buckinghamshire, Hampshire, Oxfordshire and Wiltshire.

Our Trustees play a vital role as board members, ensuring our organisation has solid plans in place to achieve our aims and that our funding is being used appropriately to do this. We are looking specifically for people with a background and expertise in finance and accountancy, people with experience in executive business growth, people with a legal background, and people with health and social care experience.

We would like the Board to be as diverse as possible to ensure that representation provides the guidance we need to grow and change with purpose to meet the needs of all clients from all backgrounds. Please download our application form and email it to info@flagdv.org.uk. We look forward to speaking to you more.

Contact us to discuss any other way you’d like to donate, and THANK YOU!!



It is increasingly common for trusts and funders to show interest in joint partnership working. Where organisations come together a greater number of individuals are reached and the quality of intervention where collaborative working takes place is richer. Extending our reach area in 2019, we not only wanted to meet partners in West Berkshire but across the whole Thames Valley area. Please reach out to us.


A Word From Our Solicitors

Efe French-Gere, Reeds Solicitors, Reading, May 2019
“I find that it is extremely encouraging when a client who at the start of a meeting presents as apprehensive, upset and perhaps even a little scared, leaves that same meeting presenting as relaxed, reassured and noticeably happier, all because I have been able to give them the advice they need.”
Irena Osbourne, BH&O Legal, Abingdon, May 2019
“Providing free legal advice at Flag DV clinics is not only personally fulfilling but also professionally challenging. Everyone at BH&O LLP (www.bholegal.co.uk) continue to be committed to those victims of domestic abuse that cannot get advice in any other way but through organisations such as FLAG DV and will continue to support FLAG DV with the fantastic work that the charity does.”
