Details

As the Prime Minister made clear at the Girl Summit earlier in 2014, the government is committed to ending forced marriage and female genital mutilation in this generation at home and abroad. These are complex and deeply rooted practices, which occur in many cultures across the globe.

Dealing with these practices requires more than just strengthening legislation and supporting frontline professionals. Communities need to be enabled to abandon them for themselves. To do this, communities need the resources to provide the tailored solutions they know will encourage people to change their beliefs and practices in their area. This is happening internationally through the Generation Girl Campaign, and it is happening here in the UK.

To celebrate UN International Day of the Girl, 11 October 2014, the Department for Communities and Local Government, in collaboration with the Government Equality Office, is launching 3 funds for voluntary organisations to apply for:

  • a £150,000 fund for community projects to prevent female genital mutilation and other forms of so-called ‘honour’ based violence
  • a £40,000 fund for up to 2 organisations to deliver a network of trusted community champions across the country to prevent and support cases of female genital mutilation
  • a £40,000 fund for up to 2 organisations to deliver a network of trusted community champions across the country to prevent and support cases of forced marriage

Apply by filling in the forms above. Please ensure you demonstrate how your bid meets all the essential criteria and return to: integration@communities.gsi.gov.uk by 5pm on 10 November 2014.
