In 2018 Australian Red Cross undertook a series of community consultations which sought to:
- capture views of communities on their experiences of forced marriage
- identify strategies communities use to prevent and respond to forced marriage
- empower communities to shape messages to influence forced marriage policies and programs.
As a result, the report Forced Marriage: Community Voices, Stories and Strategies was developed, which highlights the important role that communities and families themselves play in finding solutions to the complex issues they face.
