No one knows exactly how many victims of Honour Based Abuse and Forced Marriage there are in the UK. What we do know is that most victims fear the repercussions of bringing Shame and Dishonour to their families and so are reluctant to seek support. Honour Abuse is usually hidden from view and many victims may be too young, too scared or too ashamed to talk about what they are going through.
