Freedom of Information Request

Forced Marriages and FGM.

Received: 13 September 2021

I am writing to make an open government request for all the information to which I am entitled under the Freedom of Information Act 2000.

Karma Nirvana is a national charity supporting victims and survivors of Honour Based Abuse and Forced Marriage.

Our Ask

We are beginning to map the prevalence of honour-based-abuse and forced marriage in the UK over the last 3 years. Our aim is to identify patterns and trends in local responses to honour-based-abuse by comparing local authority data with the data Karma Nirvana's honour-based-abuse national helpline collates.

Does your organisation's Case Management and Recording system facilitate tagging case file's where,
* Forced marriage has been identified Yes/No
* FGM has been identified Yes/No

Please could send me:
