The Forced Marriage Unit (FMU) is a joint Foreign and Commonwealth Office and Home Office unit working on the government’s forced marriage policy, outreach and casework. It operates both inside the UK, where support is provided to any individual, and overseas, where consular assistance is provided to British nationals, including dual nationals.
