£220,000 For FGM Prevention Drive
Almost £220,000 will be invested to help prevent female genital mutilation (FGM) in Scotland, the First Minister has announced.
Nicola Sturgeon said the money will be directed towards community engagement projects as well as awareness-raising, training and support services.
Ms Sturgeon announced the funds as she met representatives from roshni, an organisation that works with minority ethnic communities, and Darf, an international charity set up in to tackle FGM.
She said: "Female genital mutilation is an unacceptable and illegal practice.
"It is a form of violence against women and a violation of the human rights of women and girls. It has no place in the Scotland we all want to live in.
"There is excellent work being done across Scotland to raise awareness and promote understanding of the complex issues of FGM.
"I'm pleased that this new funding will help to provide people from communities affected by FGM with a platform to have their voices heard on ending this practice in Scotland.
"I am determined that those who commit FGM abuse will be held to account and we will work with all our partners and with communities to ensure that we can protect those at risk.''
A working group is expected to report later this year on recommendations for a national action plan on FGM.
