Greater Manchester Police operates a Domestic Violence Disclosure Scheme (DVDS) or “Clare’s Law” as it is more commonly known.

This gives members of the public a formal mechanism to make enquires about an individual who they are in a relationship with, or who is in a relationship with someone they know, where there is a concern that the individual may be violent towards their partner.

This information may be disclosed via a request from a member of the public (“right to ask”) or by an agency where a proactive decision is made to consider disclosing the information in order to protect a potential victim (“right to know”).

If police checks show that the individual has a record of violent offences, or there is other information to indicate that you, or the person you know is at risk, the police will consider sharing this information.

The aim of the scheme is to increase public safety and afford victims of domestic abuse with better protection by helping people make a more informed decision on whether to continue a relationship. It also provides help and support to assist individuals when making that choice.

If you require further information about the Domestic Violence Disclosure Scheme or wish to make a request for information under it, please contact Greater Manchester Police on 101 or the Domestic Abuse Helpline, on 0161 636 7525.
