• Social Workers


    We are working with local authorities and other agencies to deliver a systems change in the way that social work is provided to girls and families affected by FGM.

  • Community Workers


    FGM can be deeply ingrained in affected communities and we engage with community members and representatives to support change in attitudes and behaviour.

  • Health Professionals


    Health professionals are usually the first professional staff to identify FGM in a woman or girl and are a key part of the multi-agency response to FGM.

  • Teachers


    Children may identify a teacher as a trusted adult to talk to about FGM and teachers need to be alert to possible signs that a child has been subject to FGM or is at risk.

  • Police


    Effective ways of policing FGM are still being established and we aim to share good practise around prevention, protection and prosecution.
