Community Legal Perspective

We are able to support you in understanding that these issues are domestic abuse, in fact a specific cultural abuse, which needs to be addressed from within communities. We are able to clarify the position of the law, in particular the Forced Marriage (Civil Protection) Act, and how this could impact on you, and the legislation on the raising of age for young people intending to marry overseas. Furthermore we are able to offer assistance with issues of Child Protection and case conferences. Should you require further, more detailed advice, we are able to signpost you to relevant organisations.
