Advance is a nationally recognised women’s charity based in London working to support and empower women experiencing domestic abuse  to be safe and those with short-term sentences to reduce re-offending and stop families breaking-up.  Established in 1998, we provide practical and emotional support to women and their children, through services based at our Hammersmith offices and at co-located offices across over 20 London boroughs.  We work in partnership with agencies in a coordinated community response, including local authorities, Family and Children’s Services, the Police, Probation Services, Magistrates and Crown Courts and other service providers.

We have just undergone a significant period of growth, and our staff team now includes over 70 skilled and passionate women across our programmes.
