FGM is a global health problem affecting millions. UNICEF and the World Health Organisation estimate that over 20 million women and girls alive today have undergone FGM and it is estimated that 30 million more will be subjected to FGM in the next decade.

That’s why we are seeking policy changes at the UK government level to improve access to support for FGM survivors  and to help the UK government to achieve its pledge  to end FGM by 2030

If you would like to support our work or sign our manifesto, please

Survivor Support

“There may be times when we are powerless to prevent injustice, but there must never be a time when we fail to protest.”

– Elie Wiesel

Defined as a human rights abuse by the UN, FGM constitutes one of the most extreme forms of violence against women and girls, causing trauma and harm that can be lifelong.

It has no place in the 21st century and must be tackled as urgently in the UK as across the world.
