Domestic abuse and violence bill

In 2018 the government published a draft Domestic Abuse and Violence Bill to improve protection for victims, linking to the broader work of the Home Office on Violence Against Women and Girls.

The consultation set out the government’s commitment to tackling domestic abuse, at every stage from prevention through to rehabilitation, and to make domestic abuse everyone’s business.

NHS England actively engaged in the consultation process at local, regional and national levels reinforcing the Government’s aim to make domestic abuse everyone’s business and will be producing a 4-year plan in response.
