Campaign to highlight new law on Domestic Abuse

A new campaign was launched recently to support the enactment on 1 April 2019 of the new law on Domestic Abuse. This legislation covers coercive control and psychological abuse and the campaign is designed to highlight the law and its provisions.

Attached is a toolkit provided by Scottish Government about the campaign which includes links to a range of resources. The TV ad can be viewed at

The new legislation represents a significant step forward in how domestic abuse is framed and addressed in Scotland which will hopefully advance the protection and access to justice of survivors of domestic abuse.
