Tackling domestic abuse

The government has announced our new Tackling Domestic Abuse Plan - investing £230 million over three years to support victims and tackle the perpetrators of these crimes.

  • Domestic abuse is a devastating crime that ruins lives. For far too long the focus has been on what the victim might have done differently, rather than on the behaviour of perpetrators. 
  • That is why the government have announced ao Tackling Domestic Abuse Plan to address this. Our plan includes the creation of a new register of offenders, an expansion of the ‘Ask for Ani’ Scheme, £140 million for supporting victims, and over £81 million to tackle perpetrators.
  • These plans will establish a whole society approach - taking the onus off victims and making it easier for them to access the support they need, while taking tough action against perpetrators.
