Forced Marriage Workshops, 4-5 May 2017 | ACRATH, Red Cross and CEWA

Australian Catholic Religious Against Trafficking in Humans (ACRATH), Catholic Education WA (CEWA) and the Red Cross have collaborated to present two training workshops in May on forced marriage.

 

The workshop on 4th May will be aimed at schools, whilst the 5th May workshop will be targeted to practitioners and others wanting to learn more about forced marriage.

Early and forced marriage in Australia is an issue of emerging concern affecting children, young people and adults living in Australia. Australian Red Cross is partnering with ACRATH and Dr Carol Kaplanian to deliver a workshop on Forced Marriage. The workshop will provide an insight into some of the key the issues surrounding forced marriage, an overview of current laws and referral pathways, and the opportunity to discuss and how to best support those in or at risk of forced marriage.
