This scoping study seeks to provide an estimate of the number of women and girls affected or potentially affected by FGM in Northern Ireland. ACSONI conducted community engagement focus groups.The sessions were facilitated by Saria Khalifa and supported by Nattassa Latcham of ACSONI, Asma Aljunaid, Sahra Mahamuud and Saba Hasaballah of the local African Community. It further seeks to identify service provision in Northern Ireland and to identify gaps in both service provision and knowledge. We would like to emphasise that the research was a scoping study to identify issues and preliminary findings on FGM in Northern Ireland. It is not a comprehensive study but instead provides a foundation for future research and engagement with stakeholders who took part in the study and also those who due to time constraints did not take part in the scoping study.
