This multi-agency guidance on female genital mutilation (FGM) should be read and followed by all IROs 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.

The information in this guidance may also be relevant to bodies working with women and girls at risk of FGM or dealing with its consequences.

Other relevant safeguarding guidance

This guidance should be considered together with other relevant safeguarding guidance, including (but not limited to):

Working Together to Safeguard Children (2015)
