“Domestic abuse comes in many forms, shattering the lives of victims and their families.” UK Government 2018

“Domestic abuse remains pervasive within our society. Despite the long-term falling prevalence, an estimated 2 million adults report being subjected to domestic abuse and, tragically, 82 women and 13 men were killed by a partner or former partner in 2016/17” Transforming the Response to Domestic Abuse Government Consultation2018 

“This is a once in a generation opportunity to create a step-change in how we deal with domestic abuse.” Jo Todd Chief Executive Respect March 2018 

The Domestic Abuse Bill consultation on the Draft Bill closed in May 2018. 
“In February 2017, the Prime Minister announced a new programme of work leading towards a draft Domestic Abuse Bill to transform how we think about and tackle domestic abuse. That commitment was affirmed in the Queen’s Speech which committed to bring forward a draft bill that proposes to: • enshrine a definition of domestic abuse in law • introduce a new protection order to better protect victims from their abusers • recognise the harm domestic abuse inflicts on a child • create a Domestic Abuse Commissioner in law • demonstrate our commitment to ratifying the Istanbul Convention by extending extraterritorial jurisdiction over Violence against Women and Girls (VAWG) related offences” Transforming the Response to Domestic Abuse Government Consultation, 2018 

“The consultation sets out the government’s approach to dealing with domestic abuse. It seeks to address it at every stage from prevention through to rehabilitation and reinforces the government’s aim to make domestic abuse everyone’s business. The consultation asks questions under four main themes with the central aim of prevention running through each:

  • promote awareness – to put domestic abuse at the top of everyone’s agenda, and raise public and professionals’ awareness
  • protect and support – to enhance the safety of victims and the support that they receive
    Transforming the Response to Domestic Abuse Government Consultation, 2018 
  • pursue and deter – to provide an effective response to perpetrators from initial agency response through to conviction and management of offenders, including rehabilitation
  • improve performance – to drive consistency and better performance in the response to domestic abuse across all local areas, agencies and sectors” Transforming the Response to Domestic Abuse Government Consultation, 2018
