Set up in 2009, The Sky Project is a charity that is actively working to reduce the number of forced marriage cases in and around Bristol and the South West.
Forced Marriage is a criminal offence. If you or someone you know is being forced to marry in the UK or abroad, please contact the Forced Marriage Unit on 0207-0080151. If that person is in immediate danger, please contact the police.
Our aims are to:
- Educate and raise awareness of forced marriage amongst communities and professional bodies
- Train professionals on the role they can play in preventing a forced marriage
- Create a multi-agency network of support services in Bristol
- Work towards providing counselling and support for victims, their friends and family
