Domestic Violence Disclosure Scheme
The scheme, also referred to as ‘Clare’s Law’, launched in Kent and nationally on 8 March 2014.
The scheme aims to ensure police forces and other safeguarding agencies across the UK use recognised and consistent procedures for the disclosure of information, enabling partners of previously violent individuals to make informed choices on whether/how their relationship continues.
Applications can be made by contacting Kent Police by phone on 101 or attending a Police Station. Two public guidance leaflets are now available:
Both leaflets are available through the Kent Police website
