On 21 January we published a draft Domestic Abuse Bill, which includes a ground-breaking series of measures to promote awareness, support victims, tackle perpetrators and improve services.

We have also published a package of non-legislative actions that will see further support for children affected by domestic abuse, the elderly, disabled, male and migrant victims and those in the LGBTQ community.

Ending domestic abuse remains an absolute priority for this government.
