Forced Marriage – where to turn to for help

  • Are you being forced into a marriage?
  • Dreading it?
  • Worried about your own safety if you don’t comply?
  • Or perhaps the safety of others?
  • Don’t know where to turn?

The government have set up a help and information page for those being forced into a marriage who clearly don’t want to be. There is help available to you. Most police departments have a specialised Forced Marriage Unit who can protect you and tell you what your options are. Ring your local police department for more information.

To go the Government’s help page, click on https://www.gov.uk/forced-marriage. This page also provides an advice link for professionals and front line workers. Many of you will find this document helpful : forced marriage – guidance for professionals.
