Disclosure Scheme for Domestic Abuse Scotland

The Disclosure Scheme for Domestic Abuse Scotland is a way for people to ask the Police if someone has a history of domestic abuse and if so, to disclose that information to their partner – the person's partner can also apply.

You can use this form to make an application:

  • About your own partner or
  • About someone else's partner (if you think that person's partner should be told if their partner has a history of domestic abuse).

The purpose of providing information to people is to allow them to make an informed decision about their situation when they may be at risk in a relationship.

All fields marked with (required) are mandatory and must be filled in.
