Domestic Abuse Commissioner reappointed for a second term

The Home Secretary has announced the reappointment of Nicole Jacobs as Domestic Abuse Commissioner for a second three-year term, effective from September 2022, which will run until September 2025.

Appointed in 2019, Ms Jacobs was previously Chief Executive Officer of the charity Standing Together Against Domestic Violence and has more than two decades of experience working to tackle domestic abuse.

As set out in the Domestic Abuse Act 2021, the Domestic Abuse Commissioner is an independent voice that champions the voices of victims and survivors, engaging those with lived experience to help shape government policy and make recommendations on what more can be done to tackle domestic abuse. The Commissioner will use her statutory powers, which are set out in the Domestic Abuse Act 2021, to raise public awareness and hold both agencies and government to account in tackling domestic abuse.
