Suffolk Refugee Support (SRS) FGM Project
Suffolk Refugee Support (SRS) FGM Project is a major initiative and we were really pleased they had time to present it to our Club. It was funded from the Rosa Foundation and is continuing with additional funding. A support network has been set up working with Suffolk Wellbeing as survivors get ‘flashbacks’ and need mental health support. SRS are running a Schools Programme – PSHE Lesson Plan information pack for teachers. From September schools must have a FGM safeguarding policy which OFSTED will be auditing. Members asked whether there was a role to help with the schools roll out. A poster had been designed which members are going to ask their GP practices and elsewhere to display. Hopefully we may be able to give more active support soon.
