Victims of domestic abuse who have accessed Clare’s Law are asked to share their experiences as part of a research project.

The legislation named in memory of Clare Wood, 36, who was murdered by an ex-partner, was rolled out in England and Wales in 2014 as the Domestic Violence Disclosure Scheme (DVDS).

The scheme enables police to disclose normally confidential information about a person’s criminal history to someone who is deemed to be at risk of future abuse, so they can make informed choices about their safety.

Ask them about Clare ’ s Law , or obtaining a ‘ domestic violence disclosure’. The police think carefully about who that disclosure should be made to: a person who receives information about domestic violence isn’t allowed to share it with anyone without explicit permission from the police.

The first law to address domestic violence specifically was the Domestic Protection Act 1982. The new legislation supported a cross-government approach to family violence as well as clear codes of practice and new information sharing strategies.

Ms Wood was strangled and set on fire at her home in Salford, Greater Manchester, in February 2009 by George Appleton, who had a record of violence against women.

Her father, Michael Brown, campaigned for the introduction of Clare’s Law and the “right to know” about a person’s history of violence. He believed his daughter would still be alive if she had known more of Appleton’s background.

Domestic violence is currently featuring in a harrowing storyline in BBC1 soap EastEnders, in which Chantelle (Jessica Plummer) is suffering physical and mental abuse at the hands of her husband Gray (Toby Alexander-Smith).
