The Rose Community is a network for families affected by FGM and people who care. It is run by people from FGM-affected communities. It was set up by Oxford Against Cutting during the summer of 2015 and is supported by the Oxford Rose Clinic team at the John Radcliffe Hospital.
Rose Community events are designed to encourage new friendships, provide education and celebrate positive, non-harmful cultural practices. Many events include delicious African or Middle Eastern food, free of charge.
The events are informal and you are welcome to join us for some or all of each event. We can often offer crèche facilities.
We will completely respect your privacy and no personal information will be shared without your consent. We ask all Rose Community members to do the same. You do not need to share any personal information and you are welcome to come along and just listen.
Please take a look at our Events page to see the events we have run so far.
