The Rose Community is a network of survivors of FGM and people who care. It is run by people from FGM 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. We usually provide delicious African food, free of charge, as part of each event.
The events are informal and you are welcome to join us for some or all of each event. We offer crèche facilities. The Rose Community is yours and please let us know if there is a subject you would like us to address.
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.
