Event description

Description

FORWARD is an African diaspora-led organisation which has pioneered the response to FGM in the UK for over 30 years. We work across the UK, Europe and Africa to ensure the rights and dignity of all women and girls are upheld, particularly around the interrelated issues of FGM, child marriage and obstetric fistula. Since 2013 our award-winning Schools Programme has worked with over 23,000 students, 4,000 members of school staff nationally on the issue of FGM, representing hundreds of schools.  

FORWARD’s Train the Trainers offers attendees a better understanding of FGM and the social and cultural context in the UK, increased knowledge of the UK law and safeguarding policies and challenges, insights on appropriate responses to and support for girls at risk of or having experience of FGM and practical issues and strategies for implementing a coordinated response to tackling FGM.

Objectives:

  • To understand the physical, psychological and social impact of FGM on young people living in the UK

  • To consider the crucial role of schools in safeguarding, informing and empowering students around FGM

  • To explore best practice in student, staff and wider community engagement

  • For attendees to feel comfortable advocating for and leading on age-appropriate, culturally sensitive schools work
