The Gathering Ground have been working with local statutory agencies and the community to understand how we are affected by FGM in this county.  This short film of three 10 minute stories profiles courageous individuals who were prepared to share their experience.  It was initially shown at the police headquarters where they launched their FGM media campaign in May this year. This is the very beginning of a much bigger project exploring how the experts in this area, affected communities, can work more effectively with local authorities to support FGM survivors and their families, generate understanding and educate towards ending this traumatic practise.
