In June this year Northamptonshire Police launched a campaign to raise awareness of FGM.
Over the last few months we have been directly asking health organisations about their work on FGM through Freedom of Information Act requests. You can see the results here.
For those agencies that have supplied numbers of cases that they have dealt with, numbers seem very low despite the concentration of prevalent communities in Northamptonshire. To us this indicates a need for more effective training that enables health professionals to have very real, honest and sensitive conversations about FGM.
If you are interested in such training get in touch. We a re running a session aimed a teachers in the next couple of months. You can book onto it here.
