About the Perpetrator

Before a Flag DV Volunteer Solicitor can speak with you they need to complete a Conflict of Interest Check. We therefore require details of the perpetrator and any children to ensure we can offer an appropriate clinic appointment. 

Please note we will never contact the perpetrator.
