    FGM

     

    FGM is an issue in Brent and is illegal in the UK – it’s also illegal to arrange for someone to be taken out of the country to be cut.

    There are no medical reasons to carry out FGM.

    Religious, social or cultural reasons are sometimes given however FGM is dangerous and a criminal offence.

    If you are fearful of FGM or know someone whom you fear will be cut, then please make a member of staff aware of your concerns.  Alternatively, you can contact an organisation such as Child Line or FORWARD.  Please see their link below:
