As part of the UKPAC remit we contribute, on your behalf, to a number of reports/inquiries. We also attend meetings of national bodies on matters of interest and importance to the organisation. Links will be provided to copies of these reports, our responses where applicable, and accounts of the meetings. We will also provide links to any reports which are concerned with issues which Soroptimists are particularly involved with.

General UKPAC Promotional Leaflet
The UKPAC has produced a leaflet for Clubs and Regions to download. It illustrates a selection of the types of project we work on across the UK.
If you are printing your own please ensure that you use at least 100g paper as any lighter weight tends to give a rather poor impression.
If you wish to get them printed professionally the pdf file should be acceptable to most printers. Some smaller printers may not be able to create the folds in two directions. In this case if you ask for the vertical folds to be creased onto the leaflets, it is possible for you to make the horizontal fold yourself, then use the vertical creases to fold in the second direction.

Commission on the Status of Women
Violence Against Women and Girls
- Double Jeopardy: Violence against Women and Economic Inequality (ActionAid report)
The National FGM Centre’s Vision is to keep children and young people safe from FGM and other Harmful Practices, including ending new cases of FGM by 2030. Through our work we aim to:
- Prevent new cases
- Protect children and young people
- Support those affected by FGM and other Harmful Practices
- Partner to deliver services and learn
We have had 450 case referrals between Sept 2015 – March 2019 from our Local Authorities in East England and London and 14 from other Local Authorities in England and Wales. We have supported the application of 28 FGM Protection Orders over this time.
As of October 2017, we have expanded our remit to include Breast Flattening and Child Abuse Linked to Faith or Belief. The National FGM Centre is a partnership between Barnardo’s and the Local Government Association (LGA) to achieve a systems change in the provision of services for children and families affected by Female Genital Mutilation (FGM). Funded by the Department of Education as part of its Children’s Social Care Innovation Programme, the Centre works closely with key partners from Local Authorities, Health, Education, Police, and the voluntary sector to achieve its vision and aims. In 2017, the Centre’s remit was extended to include Breast Ironing/Flattening and Child Abuse Linked to Faith or Belief.
Anti Slavery Partnership
Partnership is essential to effective action against modern slavery. Throughout the UK many different organisations are working hard to prevent slavery, promote identification of victims, provide support services to survivors, and ensure that slavery cannot flourish.
