Female Genital Mutilation (FGM)

The government has published Multi-agency guidelines on FGM for those with Statutory Duties to Safeguard Children and Vulnerable Adults.

This multi-agency guidance on FGM should be read and followed by all persons and bodies in England and Wales who are under statutory duties to safeguard and promote the welfare of children and vulnerable adults.
