Our Vision & Aims
The National FGM Centre’s Vision is to keep children and young people safe from FGM and other Harmful Practices, including ending new cases of FGM by 2030. Through our work we aim to:
- Prevent new cases
- Protect children and young people
- Support those affected by FGM and other Harmful Practices
- Partner to deliver services and learn
We have had 287 case referrals between Sept 2015 – May 2018 from our Local Authorities in East England and London and 14 from other Local Authorities in England and Wales. We have supported the application of 16 FGM Protection Orders over this time.
As of October 2017, we have expanded our remit to include Breast Flattening and Child Abuse Linked to Faith or Belief.
