FGM Good Practice Guidance and Assessment Tool for Social Workers

The National FGM Centre Assessment Guidance was developed to support social workers to assess a FGM case. It comprises of three main parts:

1. A good practice document on what to consider when assessing a FGM case (this document)
2. Questions to consider asking when meeting a family (Appendix 5)
3. An Online FGM Assessment which calculates the risk of FGM to a girl, on the basis of the information provided.

The FGM Assessment Tool can be accessed online at www.nationalfgmcentre.org.uk/fgm-assessment-tool Results can be downloaded as a PDF and uploaded to the child’s records.
