Forced marriage - scenario

Use this scenario to test your staff's:

  • Understanding of how to handle a safeguarding situation
  • Knowledge of your procedures

There are 2 versions - one with prompts for how staff should respond, and one without. 

If you send it to staff by email, make sure you use the version without the answers, and change the file name to avoid giving the answer away through staff seeing what safeguarding issue the scenario is about.

If you use it at a staff briefing, make sure you give staff the version without the highlighted answer text.
