Bright Choices to support victims of honour abuse

A project supporting victims of honour abuse is to be set up in Edinburgh amid a rise in the number of reported cases. It follows a survey that suggests the offence is accepted by a significant number of families in Edinburgh's black and ethnic minority communities. The support project was set up by Sacro, Edinburgh and Lothians Regional Equality Council and the charity Multi-Cultural Family Base, following consultation with Police Scotland

So-called honour crime is when a family member abuses a relative they believe has shamed the family or community.
