Domestic violence disclosure scheme - Clare's law

If you live in Nottinghamshire, you can find out if your partner has a violent past thanks to the Domestic Violence Disclosure Scheme. The scheme is more commonly know as 'Clare's Law'.

People worried that their partner may be harbouring a violent past are being urged to use a successful scheme.

It allows police to disclose information to individuals about any previous violent offending of a partner where it could help protect them from harm.

Campaigners lobbied the Government to implement the scheme following the murder of 36-year-old Salford mum Clare Wood, who was murdered by her estranged partner in 2009.

She suffered months of sexual abuse and death threats before being strangled by George Appleton, who had a history of violence against women.
