The NSPCC FGM helpline is free, anonymous and here 24/7. Call 0800 028 3550 for advice, support or if you're worried about a child or visit http://www.nspcc.org.uk/fgm
Survivors, community leaders and health professionals talk about their thoughts and experiences of female genital mutilation (FGM), female circumcision or 'cutting'.
FGM is child abuse and can have serious long-term health consequences. FGM is illegal in the UK. It has been a criminal offence in the UK since 1985. In 2003 it also became a criminal offence for UK nationals or permanent UK residents to take their child abroad to have female genital mutilation. Anyone found guilty of the offence faces a maximum penalty of 14 years in prison. Call the FGM helpline 0800 028 3550 or visit http://www.nspcc.org.uk/fgm
Campaign in partnership with the Home Office and funded by the PROGRESS Programme of European Union.
