Rachel Maclean – 2022 Comments on Support for Domestic Abuse Victims

The comments made by Rachel Maclean, the Safeguarding Minister, on 15 February 2022.

Home is not the safe place it should be for domestic abuse victims and their families. The extra support provided today will provide a vital lifeline for victims as they try and rebuild their lives positively while feeling supported and protected.

These are important changes that sit alongside the new measures in the Police, Crime, Sentencing and Courts Bill which will give victims of domestic abuse longer to report offences to the police, so that abusers do not evade justice.
