The Home Office has opened a consultation on proposals to strengthen the law on domestic abuse.

The consultation seeks views on whether the current law on domestic abuse needs to be strengthened to offer better protection to victims. It is specifically focused on whether the Home Office should create a specific offence that captures patterns of coercive and controlling behaviour in intimate relationships, inline with the government’s non-statutory definition of domestic abuse.

How to respond

Please send the Home Office your comments by using the online form.
