This fund closed in October 2011. It provided grants to front line organisations to help eradicate female genital mutilation (FGM).
Long-term and systematic eradication of FGM in the UK will require practising communities to abandon the practice themselves.
The aim of the fund is to support FGM civil society organisations to facilitate their engagement with communities in the UK. This is the central aim of the fund. The fund closed on 28 October 2011.
