Our aim is to support communities on the issue of forced marriage. Whether you are in a forced marriage, you are worried that you or a friend might be at risk, or whether you just want to find out more about this issue; you will find all the information you need on this website.

Welcome to the Against Forced Marriages website

Forced marriage is wrong. In June 2014, the UK Government criminalised forced marriage when it introduced a new law under the Anti-social Behaviour, Crime and Policing Act 2014 making the practice illegal. Forced marriage is a serious human rights violation and both UK and international law acknowledge this. If you or someone you know is at risk of a forced marriage then you should seek help.

Are you or is someone you know affected by forced marriage?
