Information on Forced Marriage

Forced marriage is where one or both people do not (or in cases of people with learning disabilities cannot) consent to the marriage and pressure or abuse is used. It is an appalling and indefensible practice and is recognised in the UK as a form of violence against women and men, domestic/child abuse and a serious abuse of human rights.
If you are concerned about forced marriage for you or somebody else you can come and see us in Students Services and we can support you with this.

Domestic Abuse

Domestic abuse (also called domestic violence) happens when one person hurts or bullies another person who is or was their partner or who is in the same family. It can happen between people who are going out together, living together, have children together or are married to each other. It can happen either when people live together or separately.

Domestic abuse can also happen after a relationship has finished. Although domestic abuse happens mostly between adults, young people can be affected by the abuse that they see and hear. Young people may also experience abuse from their own boy/girlfriend.

Child Sexual Exploitation (CSE)

CSE is the sexual exploitation of children under 18 by adults (over 18) who are not related to them. The young person is often given ‘something’ which might be alcohol, cigarettes, a gift, shelter, even compassion or flattery, in order to gain their trust before sexually abusing them. This contact may be made by any means, for example, in person, via mobile phone messages or the internet.

The Phoenix Team Tameside work to tackle CSE and there is more information about theme and what CSE is at the link above. If you are concerned about CSE for you or someone else please come and see us in Student Services for support.
