The work of our director Imran Khodabocus was commended in the IKWRO (Iranian and Kurdish Women’s Rights Organisation) True Honour Awards.
These awards are presented to a person or organisation that has taken a stand against “honour” based violence.
Appointed a Director in 2022, Imran heads up the Domestic Abuse Response team at The Family Law Company. His casework includes protecting children from FGM, forced marriage and “honour” based abuse.
Over 90 percent of Imran’s work is for legally aided cases, representing some of the most vulnerable in society and ensuring they have access to justice. Most of these cases are extremely complex and Imran is tireless in his support for these clients.
Joint-MD, Rachel Buckley says, “This is an exceptional honour and we are all so very proud of Imran who has an unswerving commitment to standing up for those who might not otherwise have a voice.
“In the South West, there is an increasing need for awareness of issues such as honour based violence which have become more prevalent in recent years. We need more people like Imran, with a passion to take on this complicated work.”
