Disclosure Scheme for Domestic Abuse Scotland

Published: 07 April 2022

The Disclosure Scheme for Domestic Abuse Scotland (DSDAS) gives people the right to ask about the background of their partner.

It also allows concerned relatives and friends, the right to ask about someone’s partner. They can ask if they have been abusive in the past.

DSDAS also gives Police Scotland the power to tell people that they may be at risk. This information can be given if it is not asked for. 

Where we have information that a person may be at harm of domestic abuse by their partner, we have the power to tell them.

DSDAS allows people to make the choice on whether to remain in the relationship.

Police Scotland and our partners can then help and support them.
