What Journalists Need to Know About the Domestic Abuse (Scotland) Bill

Zero Tolerance has produced a new briefing for journalists who are reporting on the Domestic Abuse (Scotland) Bill as it goes through the Scottish Parliament. It was produced in consultation with Scottish Women's Aid and ASSIST. 

The Bill was introduced to the Scottish Parliament on 17 March 2017. If passed, we understand that it is likely to come into effect in late 2018 or early 2019. So, there are many opportunities for covering the Bill’s progress and contents, and then, if enacted, reporting on prosecutions.

It’s for any media journalist: local reporters, national press, bloggers, TV, radio, digital, editors, picture
editors etc.

If you have further questions, or would like hard copies for your office, please get in touch with Lydia House on lydia.house@zerotolerance.org.uk or 0131 556 7365
