Advance is a free service for women and children living in Hammersmith, Fulham, Kensington, Chelsea and Westminster who are experiencing domestic violence. If you are experiencing domestic violence, Advance is here to support you no matter what you decide to do. They can listen, help you understand your options, explain your legal rights, talk to the police for you, help you get to safer housing or even attend court with you.
