FGM Assessment Tool

This Tool has been created to promote consistency in assessing the risk of FGM in a culturally competent manner with families.

The Tool has been tailored for social workers to guide them through reviewing the referral and working with the family, to developing a safety plan to keep girl(s) safe from FGM and/or support those who have undergone FGM.

The Tool should not be used to replace social workers professional judgement, but can be used to complement existing social work tools and practice to carry out a holistic assessment.
