Forced Marriage and Honour Based Violence Training

Would you be able to spot the signs of a potential forced marriage or honour based violence victim? Are you up to date with the latest information and guidance on legislation and the principles of victim support?

It is important for all front line practitioners and professionals to be aware and have an understanding of the issues surrounding forced marriages and honour based violence to enable them to respond quickly and appropriately.
