Community groups

Oxford Against Cutting provides awareness-raising training to community groups and professionals. All our sessions are delivered with a co-facilitator from an FGM-affected community.

We are pleased to have worked with many local groups including:

We have also participated in training events/conferences hosted by artist Hugh Palmer (“Hatched” art exhibition in Oxford 2017), Oxford University (conferences organised by Dr Tobe Levin), AFiUK, 28TooMany, the Department of Health, Sheila Kitzinger seminar at Green Templeton College, Integrate UK, FORWARD’s pan European conference, Tackling FGM in Schools, training for specialists hosted by the Chair of the FGM Operational Group in Oxford and Oxford University Gender Equality Society.
