Practical support for FGM-affected women

We provide support and practical assistance to women seeking medical treatment for the effects of FGM, including reversal surgeries and after-care support. We help FGM-affected women access gynaecological and sexual-health advice.

Our support workers accompany women to GP surgeries, provide translating services, ensure that details of symptoms are properly communicated and request referrals to our dedicated clinics at Chelsea & Westminster and Charing Cross hospitals. They also accompany women to the emergency departments of local hospitals when urgent medical help is needed.

For confidential advice and support or for more information, contact Sagal and her team.
