The Lower Saxony Telephone hotline against forced marriages is subsidized by the Lower Saxony Ministry of Social affairs, Women’s and family affairs, health affairs and integration. From 2006 on we offer our support not only to affected children, young people and persons living in forced marriages but also to external third persons, who are in contact with affected persons.
Therefore many calls from employees of the youth welfare offices, foreigners’ authorities, job centers, schools, hospitals, youth clubs, counseling centers, etc. reach us, because also experts have insecurities and restraining thresholds when dealing with the issue of forced marriages.
Please call us if you need support in counseling persons threatened by forced marriage or if you are looking for a contact point or accommodation for involved persons. Please call if you are interested in trainings or need information material about the issue of forced marriages. Or if you need information about support organizations from abroad, please contact the Lower Saxony Telephone hotline against forced marriages under
