Forced Marriages

Hosla has worked across the board with the voluntary sector and statutory sector to raise awareness of the issues of forced marriages. Our aim is to equip professionals who may come into contact with a young girl or woman who is in the situation or at risk of being forced into a marriage. The right training and knowledge is essential to ensure the right services and support is offered to all involved.

One of the confusions amongst professionals is the difference between a forced marriage and an arranged marriage. Often both can be perceived as the same thing, which automatically poses a risk to someone requiring support.
