Scottish Clare’s Law pilot areas announced

Police Scotland has announced that a version of Clare’s Law – a disclosure scheme for domestic abuse – is to be piloted in Aberdeen City and Ayrshire from November. The pilots will run for six months.

Police Scotland hope to roll the scheme out across the whole of Scotland in 2015, if the pilots are found to be effective.

“I believe the introduction of the Disclosure Scheme for Domestic Abuse Scotland will not only provide a mechanism to share relevant information about a partner's abusive past with their potential victims, it will give people at risk of domestic abuse the information to assist in making an informed decision on whether to continue in the relationship,” explained Assistant Chief Constable Wayne Mawson.

“Disclosures through the Scheme can be triggered by victims themselves, family members or another member of the public concerned about the victim, or public authorities such as the Police or Social Work,” he said. “The decision to disclose will lie with a multi-agency forum, taking all parties’ rights and needs into account. “When the decision is taken to share information through the Scheme, the person receiving the information will be fully supported.”
