Domestic abuse information sharing

When can information be shared in relation to domestic abuse cases

Practitioners who encounter domestic abuse victims and perpetrators often need to assess whether and how to share personal information about clients with other professionals. Lawful and responsible information sharing can be vital to help keep victims and their children safe, to carry out risk assessment, to provide support and advocacy services and to help bring perpetrators to justice.
