A new charity being set up in the Thames Valley says it aims to arrange a court appearance for victims of domestic violence within 24 hours.
It is estimated there are 13 million domestic violence incidents a year
The National Centre for Domestic Violence will provide free advice and support to victims regardless of their age, race, gender and sexuality.
"Domestic abuse is a pernicious crime which attacks the very fabric of society," Thames Valley Police said.
The charity will be launched in Kidlington, Oxfordshire on Thursday.
The charity will be based at the police's headquarters.
Steve Connor, chief executive of the National Centre for Domestic Violence (NCDV), said "Domestic abuse is a cowardly and horrific crime that affects all sectors of society.
"I'm confident that by standing together with Thames Valley Police we will send out a message that this crime will not be tolerated any longer and everything will be done to bring any perpetrators to justice.
"For the first time, victims of domestic violence within the Thames Valley area will be able to access fast free legal advice and support through the civil court system."
Ch Supt Brian Langston, from Thames Valley Police, said: "It [domestic violence] sees thousands of victims trapped in silent misery within their own homes."
