    Q808: Can you tell me about the Domestic Violence Disclosure Scheme, also known as Clare's Law?

    The Domestic Violence Disclosure Scheme 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 be initiated by the police where a pro active decision is made to disclose information in order to protect a potential victim (Right to Know).
