- Prevent new cases

- Partner to deliver services and learn
We have had 239 families referrals (over 290 girls) between Sept 2015 – Nov 2017 from our six Pilot Local Authorities in East England and 10 from other Local Authorities in England. We have supported the application of 13 FGM Protection Orders over this time.
As of October 2017, we have expanded our remit to include Breast Ironing/Flattening and Child Abuse Linked to Faith or Belief.
