Clare's Law rolled out to Police in Wales and England

A scheme giving women the right to know if a partner has a history of domestic violence will be rolled out to police forces across Wales and England from today.

Clare's Law is a domestic abuse disclosure scheme that allows people to find out if their partner, or potential partner, has a history of abuse or violence.

It also allows others with concerns, such as family members, friends and neighbours, to make an application if they have concerns about the welfare of another person. The scheme has been trialled in Gwent and in some areas of England since September 2012.
