A DOMESTIC abuse scheme which aims to cut offending was being rolled out across Scotland from today.
After a successful trial in Aberdeen and Ayrshire, The Disclosure Scheme for Domestic Abuse Scotland has been put in place nationally.
The scheme allows people across the country to check if their partner has a history of domestic violence.
It follows a campaign by Michael Brown, who is originally from Aberdeen, launched after his daughter Clare Wood was murdered in Salford, near Manchester.
Clare’s Law was introduced in England and Wales after she was killed by George Appleton in 2009, having been unaware of his violent history of violence against women.
