The Bristol Campaign

Support For Families

Hidden Voices UK consist of individuals from different background with a range of skills. One of the objectives is to support families that are currently being investigated in safeguarding procedures in relation to FGM.

The Law

FGM has been a criminal offence in the UK since 1985. In 2003 it also became a criminal offence for UK nationals or permanent UK residents to take their child abroad to have female genital mutilation  

We provide advice and support to families who are subject to child protection investigations resulting from suspicions that girls have been or are at risk of being cut.​

We encourage respect and cultural sensitivity for circumcised women through abandonment of offensive and degrading terminology “Mutilation/FGM”

We campaign for an end of racial profiling and targeting of families and communities for unjustified interventions by social services and other public agencies
