Female genital mutilation (FGM)

FGM is a procedure where the female genitals are deliberately cut, altered, or removed. There is no medical reason for this to be done. It can cause damage and emotional distress. 

FGM is a form of abuse, and it is illegal in the UK.  If you or someone you know is worried about FGM, you can get help and support.

For more help and information, talk to a trusted adult, visit NSPCC or complete our contact form.
