Domestic Violence Consultation

Theresa May
Home Secretary Theresa May has today launched a consultation on whether the current cross-government definition of domestic violence should be widened.

The consultation seeks views on three areas:

  • whether the current cross-government definition of domestic violence introduced in 2004 is working and should remain;
  •  
  • whether 'coercive control' should be reflected in the definition; and
  •  
  • whether the definition of domestic violence should include younger victims below 18 years of age.

You can find the consultation document here. The consultation closes  on the 30th March 2012.
