Female Genital Mutilation (FGM) Let’s protect our girls

The Home Office launched a Female Genital Mutilation (FGM) campaign, which started 5 October and will be running for eight weeks as part of our commitment to tackling this crime and protecting vulnerable women and girls.

The campaign will support our ongoing work to tackle FGM, which includes an ongoing programme of outreach by the Home Office’s FGM Unit, work with law enforcement bodies, and working with partners to help ensure the Government’s response is as effective as it can be.

The campaign seeks to help prevent FGM by changing attitudes among affected communities through raising awareness of the negative long-term health consequences of FGM. The campaign also encourages communities to report via the NSPCC’s FGM helpline.
