Domestic Violence Disclosure Scheme

South Australia's Domestic Violence Disclosure Scheme (DVDS) provides an avenue for a person who may be at risk of domestic violence to get information about their partner or former partner, to help make decisions about their safety and the future of the relationship.

A request for information can be made by either:

  • the person who is feeling unsafe in their relationship or about their former partner, or
  • a person concerned about the welfare of someone they know.

The Domestic Violence Disclosure Scheme is not an emergency response service.
If life is in danger, phone 000 (triple zero).
For non-urgent police assistance, phone 131 444.
