FLOWS - Finding Legal Options for Women Survivors

FLOWS – Finding Legal Options for Women Survivors is delivered by the Family Team of RCJ Advice, in partnership with Rights of Women.

We have been funded by the latest round of the Tampon Tax Fund to expand access to legal advice for women experiencing domestic abuse through the provision of phone and email consultancy advice, digital tools, and an online forum for the front line workers who assist women.

Please note that FLOWS is for organisations and the staff and volunteers that work in them, and for anyone who is a survivor of domestic abuse. If you are a member of the public wanting legal advice in relation to any other family legal matter please use our triage form which is on our family pages.

FLOWS delivers legal-advice resources for front-line professionals in Women’s Refuges, Women’s Aid organisations and organisations that provide safe environments to disclose abuse: for example, local Citizens Advice services, law clinics, and court-based services such as PSU.

FLOWS Consultancy is available daily 9am - 5pm on 0203 745 7707 or email flows@rcjadvice.org.uk

Our FLOWS poster details the consultancy service.

Rights of Women will host a FLOWS on-line discussion forum specifically for front-line practitioners. The intention is to facilitate peer-support and the sharing of best practice in relation to case. The forum will also host advice-tools including templates and learning-materials.

FLOWS is just getting started and a CourtNav module covering injunctions such as non molestation orders will be available in November to all the organisations we work with. If you a front line organisation and are interested in getting access to the legal advice and tools that will be available via FLOWS please contact flows@rcjadvice.org.uk for more information.
