Instigating Change

The National FGM Centre is a partnership between Barnardo’s and the Local Government Association (LGA). It was established in 2015 to achieve a systems change in the provision of services for children and their families who are affected by Female Genital Mutilation (FGM). In 2017, the focus of our work was extended to include Breast Ironing/Flattening and Child Abuse Linked to Faith or Belief.
