Last month the legal age of marriage and civil partnerships in England and Wales was raised to 18 in the Marriage & Civil Partnership (Minimum Age) Act 2022.

The hope is that this new law will transform the life chances of many girls, particularly those at risk of forced marriage.

To find out more about Forced Marriage and how the new law will impact on this, LAWC is running this 45-minute briefing workshop.

If you’ve not done any training previously in forced marriage, you may also want to join one of our ‘Forced marriage and honour-based abuse’ introductory sessions on 16th June and 8th July.

Further details of all the training sessions and events we can offer for professionals can be found here. Unless stated otherwise, most sessions are open to both women and men professionals and are offered free of charge.

If you can’t make this date, we’ll be running a further session on 17th June.
