Responding to Forced Marriage: Multi-Agency Practice Guidelines, 14/01/13 [S]

These practice guidelines aim to inform frontline practitioners who are responsible for protecting children and adults from the abuse associated with forced marriage.

The Scottish Parliament passed the Forced Marriage etc. (Protection and Jurisdiction)(Scotland) Act 2011 (referred to in this document as the 'Forced Marriage Act') both to protect people from being forced to marry without their free and full consent as well as those who have already been forced to do so.

These practice guidelines aim to inform frontline practitioners who are responsible for protecting children and adults from the abuse associated with forced marriage.

For full details see Responding to Forced Marriage: Multi-Agency Practice Guidlines which is available from the Scottish Government website.
