If you or someone you know needs help, information, advice, or medical attention related to female genital mutilation, call the free 24-hour helpline, believed to be the first FGM-focused helpline ever in the UK on 0800 028 3550 or fgmhelp@nspcc.org.uk. Trained child protection experts from the NSPCC will answer calls. The Metropolitan Police is also supporting the helpline, which follows a similar service in Burkina Faso which has had a positive impact.
