The Safe Durham Partnership Plan 2016-19 continues to demonstrate new and innovative approaches as we respond to an ever changing and more challenging landscape.

PREVENT e-learning course

The Safe Durham Partnership has developed a 30 minute e-learning course which provides information about the process of radicalisation, how someone might be vulnerable to radicalisation and how staff might discuss or report any concerns. You can find out more on our Counter Terrorism page.

Clare's Law

The Domestic Violence Disclosure Scheme, known as Clare's Law gives members of the public a formal mechanism to make inquiries where they have a concern that their partner may pose a risk to them or where they are concerned that the partner of a member of their family or a friend may pose a risk to that individual. Clare's Law allows the police to disclose information about a partner's previous history of domestic violence or violent acts.
