Anonymous Registration

Anonymous Registration is available to those whose safety would be at risk if their name is included on the register or if they are living in a household of someone at risk.

The application must be accompanied by a copy of a court or injunction (the document must be in force today) or an attestation by a qualifying officer and proof of your address (eg. a photocard driving licence).

A qualifying officer is:

  • The Chief Officer of Police of any police force in England in Wales
  • The Chief Constable of any police force in Scotland or the Police Service of Northern Ireland
  • Director General of the Security Services or Serious Organised Crime Agency
  • A Director of Adult Social Services or Children's Services in England, a Director of Social Services in Wales or a Chief Social Work Officer in Scotland

The qualifying officer does not have to be based in the same area as the applicant, but the attestation cannot be delegated to a more junior person within their organisation.
