ADVICE FOR GIRLS & YOUNG WOMEN
You can also call the NSPCC on 0800 028 3550. This is a 24-hour free helpline for anyone concerned about girls or women at risk of FGM.
If you are in the UK and are at immediate risk, or are concerned that you or someone else may be taken overseas for the purpose of FGM, please contact the police by dialing 999.
You can contact Crime Stoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111 or via their website.
If you are worried that a girl has been taken abroad for FGM you should contact the Foreign and Commonwealth Office on 020 7008 1500.
If you are going abroad with your daughter take a copy of the Scottish Government leaflet: FGM - A Statement Opposing Female Genital Mutilation (download below).
This might be of help if your family or community put pressure on you to arrange FGM for your daughter. Show the leaflet to your family and keep it with you at all times.
If you are abroad and require help or advice call the Foreign and Commonwealth Office on +44 (0) 20 7008 1500 or contact the British High Commission or Embassy in the country you are visiting.
