Day 2 of the #HonourBasedAbuse training programme for police and social workers. Our first face to face event. It's good to be back! @syptweet @SheffieldLSCP @SheffieldASP
Trust is sometimes the only tool we have to ensure a victim remains in support. The introduction of the bill will put a statutory duty on public agencies by disclosing information on service users. Niya spoke when she was in a forced marriage. theguardian.com/uk-news/2021/s…
Happy birthday to my dearest sister Robina, your life was tragically lost to suicide. She would have been 58 today. The abuses she experienced were silenced by a community that put so called honour before her safety. ⁦@KNFMHBV⁩ was founded on your memory, never forgotten🙏�T4

Despite rates of #ForcedMarriage falling during the pandemic, cases are beginning to rise. This case highlights after a string of failures by Enfield Council a teenage girl was forced to marry a man who assaulted her. #ChildMarriage bbc.co.uk/news/uk-englan…
The #Domesticservitude animation has been translated into Urdu, Punjabi & Bengali. This follows evidence showing a specific increase in reports within West Yorks, indicating women from Pakistan & Bangladesh are being brought to the UK & exploited More ➡️ westyorks-ca.gov.uk/policing-and-c…
#DomesticServitude is happening right now in the UK and involves victims working in a family home where they are ill-treated, humiliated, subjected to unbearable conditions. A real-life story of a survivor is the inspiration behind a new online animation: youtube.com/watch?v=mxQWjD…

Great to have government leadership tackling #VirginityTesting as our National helpline frequently hears from women and girls impacted by these issues. Read our article with Saira Khan @DailyMirror mirror.co.uk/news/uk-news/v… twitter.com/sajidjavid/sta…
Thanks to @nicolejacobsST for speaking at our National Day of Memory and helping us remove #HonourBasedAbuse from its 'cultural cul-de-sac' @natasharat2 twitter.com/CommissionerDA…
Read our full response to this below⤵️ karmanirvana.org.uk/news-item/home…
We are pleased to have a full govt commitment to ending #VirginityTesting and welcome the implementation of an independent expert panel to explore banning #Hymenoplasty. Both issues are inextricably linked, and we will be calling upon the govt to end both harmful practices.
It is great to have recognition & commitment within the @ukhomeoffice #VAWG strategy to #EndChildMarriage. Whilst removing parental consent is a progressive step, it still won't protect ALL children from child marriage in Eng & Wales. Read our full response to this problem⤵️
We are pleased to see the inclusion of criminalising Virginity Testing in the government's latest Violence Against Women and Girls strategy. This is the first step towards tackling this harmful practice. #VAWG See our full response in the link ⤵️ karmanirvana.org.uk/news-item/home…

On today's National Day of Memory we remember the life of Shafilea Ahmed and others like her. Sadly, many are still experiencing - or at risk of - honour-based violence, and so we must raise awareness of these practices. Help is available: karmanirvana.org.uk/get-help/ twitter.com/KNFMHBV/status…
