Home Office, April 2016
This multi-agency guidance on female genital mutilation (FGM) should be read and followed by all persons and bodies in England and Wales who are under statutory duties to safeguard and promote the welfare of children and vulnerable adults. It replaces female genital mutilation: guidelines to protect children and women (2014).
It is not intended to replace wider safeguarding guidance, but to provide additional advice on FGM.
