WHAT IS THE DOMESTIC VIOLENCE ABUSE DISCLOSURE SCHEME (DVADS)?
DVADS is a police-operated scheme that lets you make inquiries to the police about your partner, if you’re worried they have been abusive in the past.
It also allows someone else you know to ask about your partner, if they have concerns that your partner has a history of abusive behaviour.
You must be aged 16 or over to apply to the scheme.
The person you feel may be at risk must reside in Northern Ireland.
