Information to be read by the applicant
The Domestic Violence and Abuse Disclosure Scheme does not replace existing procedures that are currently in place for the Disclosure and Barring Service(DBS), Subject Access or Freedom of Information (FOI) requests, nor does it replace existing Safeguarding Adults procedures. Where an enquiry is made that is unsuitable for the disclosure scheme, Safeguarding Adult procedures may be taken.
Disclosure will only be given to the person at risk and / or the person who is in the best position to safeguard the person at risk from harm.
Relevant checks should be completed by POLICE using the information given in this form. The results of these checks will be used to assess whether there is an immediate or imminent risk of harm to the person at risk from the subject.
Should a decision be made to progress the disclosure application further then this will be referred to the PSNI's Public Protection Team to follow up. There will be a face-to-face discussion with the applicant by a specially trained officer. This should take place no longer than 12 days after the initial contact. You are advised that credible proof of identity will be required at this stage (preferably photo ID such as a passport or driving licence). From this, the necessary checks and risk assessments MUST be completed which will then be discussed at the Decision Making Forum before any disclosure can be made. Other than in exceptional circumstances, applications for disclosure should be completed within 45 days of initial contact.
If any immediate risks are identifed at any stage, then immediate safeguarding action will be taken, including a safety plan delivered by PSNI and partners.
If 'Yes', follow the appropriate action to address any concerns and identified risks regarding domestic abuse and personal safety for further information please consult PSNI Domestic abuse information page on the external website.
IN CIRCUMSTANCES WHERE CHILD PROTECTION CONCERNS ARE IDENTIFIED THE INFORMATION WILL BE PASSED TO THE RELEVANT SOCIAL SERVICES TRUST.
