Description

As many as 137,000 girls and women were living with consequences of FGM (2015) in the UK.

FGM has been illegal in the UK for more than 30 years, but there have been no convictions to date. In the UK as many as 137,000 girls and women were living with consequences of FGM (2015) and perhaps another 60,000 under the age of 15 were born to mothers from FGM practicing countries and are possibly also at risk. This course will give you an understanding of Female Genital Mutilation, the circumstances under which it is performed and information on what to do when you have concerns
