National Policy Context

Short term and long term goals for the prevention of domestic abuse in Scotland.

In 2003, the Scottish Government set out its national strategy, which has short term and long term goals for the prevention of domestic abuse in Scotland.  

This was followed, in June 2008, by the National Domestic Abuse Delivery Plan.  The plan details thirteen Priorities for Action under the key themes of protection, provision, primary prevention through education, and participation.  To support getting it right for children and young people affected by domestic abuse, their families and communities we are adopting a holistic approach to addressing domestic abuse, recognising that measures to improve outcomes for children and young people include achieving better outcomes for all involved.

Safer Lives:  Changed Lives sets out the shared approach to tackling violence against women in Scotland.  It aims to support those working towards this by providing a definition, guiding principles and a suggested focus for future work.

The Equality Act 2010 gives protection against direct and indirect discrimination, discrimination by association and perception, harassment, victimisation and promotes positive action in relation including about sex.  See resources section for extra information on domestic abuse and equalities.
