In November 2018, the Home Secretary announced the government’s public consultation on preventing and tackling forced marriage. The consultation is open to everyone, with particular interest in hearing from victims and survivors of forced marriage, those with expertise in the area of forced marriage, and relevant professionals, including those working in social care, education, policing and health.
Karma Nirvana will be submitting its own response to the consultation, however we thought it would be useful to provide a briefing paper to offer some assistance to our stakeholders, especially with the festive (and annual leave) season now upon us.
The deadline for consultation responses is 11am on the 23rd January 2019.
The consultation can also be found at:
