The charity Karma Nirvana on average receive 22 reports every week from children and young people concerned about a forced marriage, however, despite legislation introduced in June 2014, convictions have been rare until this week when we saw two prosecutions in the space of one week.
On average, we receive 700-800 calls a month to our helpline. 40% of calls are from professionals. There is an increase in the number of calls just before the school holidays, as this is when students are taken abroad to be married.
