About this Tool
We have created this tool for Social Workers to help guide the assessment of cases where FGM is a concern. This Tool does not replace professional judgement and only provides recommendations.
We recommend you work your way through the chapters to ensure a holistic assessment from referral onwards.
The tool has two elements: Best Practice Guidance (which can be downloaded as a hard copy or viewed online below) and an Online FGM Assessment Tool which, based on the information you give, generates a risk level and relevant alerts regarding Mandatory Reporting and more.
