Stop Honour Based Violence
Honour Based Violence (HBV) is a crime or act which is committed to protect or defend the so-called ‘honour’ of the family or community.
Examples of HBV include murder, assault, forced abortion, disfigurement, enforced suicide, kidnapping and false imprisonment: acts which are motivated by 'honour' in order to uphold perceived cultural and/or religious beliefs.
All the above crimes are contrary to British Law, and at JAN Trust we work extensively within communities and religious groups to raise awareness of HBV and its consequences. We influence policy on this subject, and also provide advice and guidance to women as well as offering preventative courses on HBV.
