Female Genital Mutilation - Affected Communities in Birmingham
With funding from Rosa, this research was conducted in 2014-15. The aim of this research was to increase the understanding of the issue of female genital mutilation (FGM) in Birmingham by finding out the views of women, children and men from FGM affected communities and use the insights to be able to better challenge tolerance of this practice and build awareness. Another objective was to understand the impact on survivors and what support was needed for them or those at risk and whether there were issues being overlooked by current service provision. The report makes 20 recommendations.
