100 professionals confirmed for local MP’s FGM conference

Youth for ChangeOver 100 North London professionals have signed up to attend Lynne Featherstone MP’s upcoming conference on ‘working together to end FGM.’

Health workers, social workers, police, teachers and community groups will get together at the conference – which is being held at Hornsey School for Girls on Tuesday 17th February.

There will be a number of sessions for professional to discuss how they can best work together to prevent FGM and support local girls.

The conference will be opened by Lynne Featherstone MP, and will also include speeches by prominent FGM campaigners Nimco Ali and Alimatu Dimonekene.

The MP for Hornsey and Wood Green is also the Minister for Crime Prevention at the Home Office. The Lib Dem MP previously held a position at DFID, where she announced a £35 million programme to help end FGM within a generation.

There are a small number of spaces still available for the conference, which can be booked by contacting the Liberal Democrat MP.

Lynne Featherstone MP commented:

“In a truly fair and equal society – no girl would be at risk of undergoing FGM. That’s why I will continue to raise awareness and campaign for better support and protection for girls until FGM is no longer practised at all.

“This conference will bring together different professionals, campaigners and survivors from across North London, and will start conversations about how working together can benefit local girls who may be at risk.

“I’m really looking forward to the event. There are still a few spaces left for the conference – please do get in touch if you’re interested in attending.”
