"Honour" Based Abuse
So called “Honour” Based Abuse, including Forced Marriage and Female Genital Mutilation (FGM) are serious abuses of an individuals’ rights. Those affected are often some of the most vulnerable in our community, and can find themselves in conflict with the people they care about the most. Isolated from family and friends, they can feel like they have no one to turn to. It is crucial that these harmful practices are challenged and that those affected can be confident that the police and criminal justice system will support them and bring perpetrators to justice. I will work with victims, survivors, partners and all communities to raise awareness of these crimes, support those affected, and fight to eradicate HBA.
"Honour" Based Abuse Priority Plan
So that we can all understand more about what we are doing together and want to do together to deliver on our priority areas of work we have developed our 'Priority Plans'.
These plans will be refreshed and renewed and are work in progress but we will report on our delivery against these Priority Plans in public facing Community Outcomes Meetings.
We want to demonstrate the difference we are making in our communities but we also want to know what else we could be doing to keep people in West Yorkshire safe and feeling safe.
