NSPCC FGM Helpline

The mission of After Silence, a message board, chat room, and support group for rape and sexual abuse survivors

After discovering that more than 70 women and girls as young as seven seek treatment every month, we have launched a helpline to protect UK children from female genital mutilation (FGM).

Anyone who is worried about a child being or has been a victim of FGM can contact
0800 028 3550 for information and support.

Our helpline will give advice, information and support for anyone concerned that a child’s welfare is at risk because of female genital mutilation.

Though callers’ details can remain anonymous, any information that could protect a child from abuse will be passed to the police or social services.

The Metropolitan Police force is also supporting the FGM helpline as part of its crime prevention work and has provided training to the NSPCC.

If you are worried that a child may be at risk of FGM, you can contact our 24 hour helpline anonymously on 0800 028 3550 or email fgmhelp@nspcc.org.uk.
