Report honour based abuse or violence
So-called honour-based abuse or violence is any practice used to control behaviour within families to protect perceived cultural and religious beliefs and/or honour. It is a violation of human rights and is a serious crime.
Examples of honour-based abuse or violence include:
- threats and intimidation
- domestic abuse, physical, sexual, emotional, financial or psychological abuse
- a forced marriage is where you not are given a choice if you want to marry the other person in the UK or be taken abroad to marry
If you feel you are in immediate danger, you should dial 999.
