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 email@example.com
- 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/
