Domestic Violence Disclosure Scheme (Clare's Law)

This scheme enables the police to release information about any previous history of violence or abuse a person might have. On behalf of their clients, practitioners can apply for information about their current or ex-partner because you're worried they may have a history of abuse and are a risk to your client.

Professor Simon Green and Dr Nicola O’Leary, two leading victimologists based at the University of Hull, talk to bar and door staff across the city about how we can all work together to ensure women and girls are protected in the night time economy.  With growing concerns about spiking drinks and syringing women, they have teamed up with Safer Hull and the Police and Crime Commissioner to help ensure we can all enjoy ‘Great Nights Out’ together.  Their presentation explores the reasons behind why we all have a responsibility to look out for each other when we’re enjoying a few drinks.
