Foreign & Commonwealth Office Forced Marriage Unit

Service/Activity is free

A forced marriage is where one or both people do not (or in cases of people with learning disabilities, cannot) consent to the marriage and pressure or abuse is used. It is an appalling and indefensible practice and is recognised in the UK as a form of violence against women and men, domestic/child abuse and a serious abuse of human rights.

For more information or advice please contact the FMU directly.
