Protect Your Personal Information

Privacy Restrictions can help in protecting an individual who is experiencing family / domestic violence and/ or stalking.  If the offender is an ex-partner then it is important that that person is not left as nominee with permission to receive or access information. This is important when dealing with many organisations both public and private.

The Women's Information Service has developed a guide and checklist to assist workers and individuals identify key organisations to be considered and contacted to assist in protecting an individual's privacy. These can accessed via the links below:

Neither the guide nor the checklist are exhaustive and all effort has been made to ensure the accuracy of the information in this guide as at the time of production. The information in the guide should not be a substitute for legal and/ or professional advice. To provide feedback on the contents of this guide please email
