Domestic Violence Disclosure Scheme

The Domestic Violence Disclosure Scheme known as Clare’s Law is intended to provide information that could protect someone from being a victim of attack. Every request is thoroughly checked by a panel made up of police, probation services and other agencies to ensure that information is only passed on when lawful, proportionate and necessary. Trained police officers are on hand to support victims though difficult transitional periods.

If you would like to find out information on your partner or are concerned about a friend/family member’s partner you can make the request by clicking the link below
