Mutli-Agency Practice Guidelines – Handling Cases of Forced Marriage

This document seeks to supplement the statutory guidance with advice and support to front line practitioners who have responsibilities to safeguard children and protect adults from the abuses associated with forced marriage. As it is unlikely that any single agency will be able to meet all the needs of someone affected by forced marriage, this document sets out a multi-agency response and encourages agencies to cooperate and work together closely to protect victims.
