The requirement for a stronger perpetrator focus, more robust legislation about coercive control, the Domestic Violence Disclosure Scheme & non fatal strangulation beoming a stand alone offence. These & other important changes are becoming embedded & the action required on the ground is unprecedented.

The conversation I will share with you covers the changes & how the sector is managing it, how the changes are viewed. But fundamentally, the question about how risk assessment & how well it assists in preventing serious harm is a valid one.
