End forced child marriage: Best practice response guidelines


  
Abstract

  The purpose of these Guidelines is to assist workers in their work with children where there is a risk of forced child marriage. The Guidelines are a resource to promote cooperation, information sharing, accountability and a coordinated approach across all responsible service providers pursuant to the child care and protection laws in each State and Territory. The aim is to highlight forced child marriage as a child protection concern; facilitate a coordinated response to child victims; and ultimately improve the safety, welfare and wellbeing of children faced with the abuses inherent in forced marriage.
