Clares Law

  • Published on Apr 18, 2018

    A scheme to let people find out from police if their partner has a history of domestic violence was brought in across England and Wales in 2014.

    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.

    The initiative is named after 36-year-old Clare Wood who was murdered by her ex-boyfriend in 2009. The scheme allows the police to disclose information on request about a partner’s previous history of domestic violence or violent acts.

    A new leaflet has just been produced explaining the Clares Law process. Clares Law Domestic Violence.
