Female Genital Mutilation (FGM)

FGM is any procedure which involves the partial or complete removal of the external female genitalia or other injury to the female genital organs for non-medical reasons. Redland Green staff have been trained to recognise the risk factors involved and will contact the necessary authorities if we believe that a child is at risk.

If parents wish to find out more information about FGM then the NSPCC has a well-informed section on their website http://www.nspcc.org.uk/preventing-abuse/child-abuse-and-neglect/female-genital-mutilation-fgm/. In addition the NSPCC has a 24-hour telephone helpline - 0800 0283550 - for anyone who has concerns that a young person is at risk.
