Idea Exchange with a view to co-designing sensitive, non-confrontational methodologies for gaining insight into ongoing sexual trauma for those living with FC/FGM

Project Details


Women who have had FC/FGM often experience life-long consequences in relation to health, wellbeing and sexual functioning. However, current policy in the UK tends to ignore these needs in favour of policies which seek to protect potential future victims. This Ideas Exchange inaugurated research relationships with experts in the delivery of care to sexual trauma survivors (from the Bristol Sexual Assault Referral Centre) and key community partners (from the grass-roots health organisation Caafi Health) and thus initiated a much-needed examination of how living with FC/FGM can be re-imagined for individuals and society.
