Trainer: Dawn Richardson
Female Genital Mutilation (FGM) is the act of removing all or part of the external female genitalia for non-medical reasons (WHO, 2016). FGM is mainly practiced on girls under 18 years.
This training looks at FGM from a child safeguarding perspective in Northern Ireland. The training will offer an explanation of FGM, explore FGM from a child and human rights perspective and outline the responsibilities of workers who have concerns about FGM.
