Forced marriages support

Forced marriage is a hidden crime that’s on the rise, with recent figures showing an increase of 20% over the last two years.

In 2016 alone, there were 1428 reported cases across the UK, with more than one in ten of these taking place in the North West – making it one of the top three worst areas.

If you need help leaving a marriage you’ve been forced into, or you’re trying to stop a forced marriage, visit the following Government website: https://www.gov.uk/stop-forced-marriage

A survivor’s handbook with details of organisations that can provide help and advice, is available online.
