Check out new partners

Did you know that you, or an interested third party (eg family member) can check whether an ex or current partner has a history of violence or abuse? This ‘Right to Ask’ is enshrined in Clare’s Law.  More information on HM Govt website or on a dedicated website Clare’s Law. However, Wiltshire Police are currently reviewing their handling of such requests in past years, which have not been properly done.
