The National Children's and Youth Law Centre (NCYLC) is undertaking Australia's first national research into the forced marriage of children. The Centre is consulting with community service providers and other relevant organisations about how they currently respond to child forced marriage.
If you have had any experience with children in or at risk of a forced marriage, we'd love to hear from you!
