There are two ways you can get criminal law advice from Rights of Women. You can send us a message through our online FLOWS Answers service or you can call us on our criminal law telephone advice line. 

Both of these services are for women in England and Wales who need advice on criminal law.

We can advise you on:

  • sexual offences including rape and sexual assault
  • domestic violence, harassment and stalking
  • coercive and controlling behaviour
  • reporting offences to the police and the criminal justice system
  • criminal injuries compensation
  • complaints about the police and other criminal justice bodies

FLOWS Answers

We run a free online criminal law advice service for women in England and Wales called FLOWS Answers. You can write to us using the online tool and a lawyer from the Rights of Women team will email you with a response to your question within 2 weeks.

You can find the service here.
