**Preventative Measures: Empowering Safety**

At G.E.M, our commitment to empowerment goes beyond healing and support; it extends to proactive measures aimed at preventing future harm. We believe in equipping our clients with the knowledge and resources to safeguard themselves and their communities. Here are some key preventative measures we offer:

**1. Clare’s Law**

Knowledge is Power: – Clare’s Law, also known as the Domestic Violence Disclosure Scheme, empowers individuals by granting them the right to request information about their partner’s history of abusive behaviour. G.E.M provides guidance on how to access this vital information, enabling you to make informed decisions about your safety and well-being.

**2. Jane’s Law**

Strengthening Legal Protections:- Jane’s Law, an initiative to enhance legal protections for survivors, plays a crucial role in preventing domestic abuse. G.E.M offers support in understanding your legal rights, obtaining restraining orders, and accessing legal resources to ensure your safety within the legal framework.

**3. Valerie’s Law**

Cultural Competency Training:- G.E.M actively supports Valerie’s Law, focusing on tackling domestic abuse specifically among black communities. We are committed to advocating for and participating in cultural competency training programs for the UK police force and its related bodies. By enhancing the cultural understanding and sensitivity of law enforcement, we aim to improve their ability to respond effectively to cases of domestic abuse within diverse communities.

Proactive Education and Resources

In addition to these important legal frameworks, G.E.M provides proactive education and resources to empower individuals to protect themselves and others:

Safety Planning: – We assist you in developing personalized safety plans tailored to your specific situation, helping you navigate potentially dangerous circumstances.

Community Engagement: G.E.M encourages active community involvement to create a network of support, ensuring that everyone has a role to play in preventing violence against women.

We are committed to providing you with the knowledge, tools, and support necessary to protect yourself and contribute to a society free from violence. Together, we can break the cycle of abuse, foster healthy relationships, and empower individuals and communities to thrive.
