Over 137,000 women and girls in England and Wales have undergone FGM. It has devastating lifelong physical and psychological impacts and yet many vulnerable women have no access to support services.
For many years Manor Gardens has been raising awareness about Female Genital Mutilation (FGM), influencing the national agenda. We continue to educate parents and leaders so that they do not practise FGM on their daughters and break the cycle.
Our main work with women affected by FGM is now centred around the therapeutic Dahlia groups, two specialist FGM NHS clinics in north London and community support in Newham.
You can find out more about our Dahlia work which provides survivors of FGM with life-changing support. Our therapists are often the first person a woman has told her story to and many describe the relief they feel at being able to openly discuss how FGM affects their lives, both physically and mentally. We also enable women to continue their journey through our facilitated Empowerment Groups.
