Advance Advocacy And Non-violence Community Education

ADVANCE is a well respected women’s charity based in West London. We provide crisis intervention, advocacy and support for women and young girls experiencing domestic violence. We also provide services for women trapped in the criminal justice system often as a result of domestic abuse in order to help them to escape the stigmatic cycle of criminal offending.

Founded 2001

  • Mission statement

    ADVANCE’s mission is to prevent domestic violence against women and the causes of women’s offending by delivering high-quality services that challenge discrimination and focus on:
    - prevention and earlier intervention;
    - provision of immediate and ongoing support;
    - protection to reduce risk and maximise safety; and partnership working to achieve coordinated action and influence the practice of others.

    1. Women and children have the right to live in a world free from violence, abuse, discrimination and oppression, and where everyone is treated with dignity and respect.
    2. Women’s safety must be the over-riding priority in all services, and institutional change should be influenced through independent advocacy.
    3. Women need access to safe, separate, non-judgemental, women-only services. Women-only provision is promoted and recognised as a source of expertise throughout our service delivery as a women-led organisation.
