FGM Toolkit

  |   Education & Training, Latest News

Resolution have published a Female Genital Mutilation Toolkit to enable lawyers to identify women and girls who may be at risk of being made subject to the criminal practice of FGM.


The toolkit is available to download from our INFORMATION CENTRE.  It is an incredibly helpful guide to best practice in assisting clients – in the most sensitive way possible – to be able to disclose that they feel at risk of this happening to themselves or a child.  It signposts other sources of information and some of the signs to look out for as potential indicators of risk.  The toolkit also gives good examples of questioning techniques which could in fact be applied by practitioners to other situations where a person may feel unable to make a disclosure due to certain cultural or religious reasons; for example, forced marriage or honour-based violence.
