FGM National Action Plan 2016 - 2020

The action plan sets out the objectives, actions and responsibilities required to drive and deliver change. These have been informed by research, experience of other countries, engagement with partners in all sectors and the experiences of communities, service providers and those who have been or are at risk.  

The plan sets out an agreed range of actions and associated activities to be taken forward by Scottish Government and its partners to prevent and ultimately eradicate FGM. It also identifies any gaps in our knowledge and makes recommendations on how we can close them by working collaboratively across a wide range of interests and policy areas to develop best possible outcomes.
