Safeguarding Children – Forced marriages

The UK government has highlighted the need for professionals to be aware of the issue of forced marriages during the school holidays.  During the summer months the Forced Marriage Unit gets a rise in reports of  teenagers going abroad, thinking it was for a holiday,  but  then finding themselves forced into marriage.  Guidelines for professionals are available from www.gov.uk and details on numbers to call if you have concerns are available here .
