Forced Marriage (FM)/Female Genital Mutilation (FGM)/Honour Based Abuse (HBA)

Honour Based Abuse, Forced Marriage (FM) and Female Genital Mutilation (FGM) can affect both boys and girls and will have a serious, long-term impact on their lives.  

In order to tackle these issues and to enable us to identify and support victims, we must raise awareness throughout our community.  In particular, young people need to know their rights, how to recognise the signs of abuse, and where they can go for help.
