Female Genital Mutilation

Female Genital Mutilation

Female genital mutilation (FGM) or "cutting" is illegal in the UK. It is also illegal to arrange for a child to be taken abroad for FGM. If caught, offenders face a large fine and a prison sentence.

If you are a victim of FGM or are worried about someone who is at risk of FGM or has had FGM, you must share this information with social care or the police. It is then their responsibility to investigate and protect any girls or women involved.

Please find attached a poster from the NSPCC regarding FGM:
