Raising awareness of Clare’s Law

We are carrying out a campaign to raise awareness of 'Clare’s Law'.

The Domestic Violence Disclosure Scheme (DVDS) enables people to apply for information about their partner’s (or ex-partner’s) history if they’re concerned about their own safety. It also enables a concerned family member, friend, neighbour or colleague to apply for that information to protect someone they believe to be at risk of harm. 

A disclosure means sharing specific information about a partner for the purposes of protecting the person in a relationship with them from domestic violence, and is known as a ‘Right to Ask’ disclosure.  

  • To make a Clare’s Law application contact Sussex Police: 
  • Visit a police station or speak to any officer 
  • Email 101@sussex.pnn.police.uk
  • Phone 101

But if you believe that you or someone else is in immediate danger, always call 999. 

Please visit the following website for more information and a list of other organisations that can offer and support in relation to domestic abuse: https://sussex.police.uk/news/police-seek-to-increase-awareness-of-clares-law/
