FGM Event - Collaborative Working

Tally Ho Birmingham Police Centre

What a great event held 12th February at The tally HO. Great to see how we are all the agencies, health, police,  social care and the voluntary sector wanting to work together to ensure safe practices and safe opportunities for women to talk and disclose. Also to see the importance that building the trust within these communities to enable delivery of knowledge and information surrounding the impact on health and child birth and also the mental health issues that can be linked to FGM.

Important to hear the Theory of Change and the social impact and return on investment from Sophie McHale and the conclusion of her 18 months work on the project, alongside our own Rachel delivering with one of the FGM Champions Ashleigh, and how they are embracing the many different affected communities. This is not just an African issue.

Always great to hear Birmigham and Solihull Women's Aid plus the details of the new project in health for GP's. 

Well done to all involved!
