FORWARD was founded in response to the continuing practice of FGM among migrant communities in the UK. We have been working ever since to frame the practice as a human rights violation, informing affected communities about the health implications and laws. We are now one of the longest standing organisations tackling FGM in the UK and we continue our work to support women affected and girls at risk of FGM through our programmes:

“I spoke yesterday with my class about the sessions – and the AMOUNT of information between them that they came with is excellent – I was so proud and impressed with them and that is all down to you.”
