Karma Nirvana lobbied the government for over a decade and was instrumental in persuading Prime Minister David Cameron to criminalise forced marriage in 2014. The charity is often called on as an expert advisor to the courts in matters of child, civil and criminal proceedings, and often attends Home Office roundtable discussions to ensure the implementation of the HMIC inspection into Honour abuse and FGM.

Karma Nirvana works closely with the Government’s Forced Marriage Unit in Westminster.
