About our work

1. What is the Lower Saxony Telephone Hotline against forced marriages?

The Lower Saxony Telephone hotline against forced marriages consists of an intercultural team of women. Most of the members have a migration background and so the counseling can take place in many different languages like Turkish, Kurdish, Persian and Arabic. If needed we have interpreters for more languages.

2. How does the Lower Saxony Telephone Hotline against forced marriages work?

Our employees work with a feministic approach and have the aim to support girls and women on their way into an autonomous life. They are bound by the duty of confidentiality and so will handle the personal data strictly confidentially. If wished the counseling will take place anonymously. One of the most important principles is to take the wishes and fears of those seeking for help seriously and to consider them as experts for their life situations and families. We won’t take any decisions without the permission of the affected person, except the local laws force us to do so.

3. What does the Lower Saxony Telephone Hotline against forced marriages offer?

The Lower Saxony Telephone Hotline against forced marriages offers support to people affected or threatened by forced marriages. We help in dealing with their situation and encourage them in making decisions. Together with those seeking for help we try to find individual solutions. The employees give information about laws and aid options, about residence issues. They also accompany and support them in contacting local authorities and institutions, as well as with lawyers, women’s refuges, protection institutions, psychologists, youth welfare offices, foreigners’ authorities, job centers, etc…If necessary also in different federal states or abroad.
