Refugee Women of Bristol in partnership with the Foundation for Women's Health Research and Development (FORWARD) invite you to join us for an informative day of presentations, discussions, workshops and networking at our annual International Zero Tolerance for FGM Conference.

The conference celebrates the multiagency approach, which is recognised as a “beacon of excellence” in the movement against FGM.

The day aims to bridge the gap between the work of key agencies and individuals, by bringing together the work of community advocates, students, teachers, and other key professionals.

It's an opportunity for cross agency learning, networking and for members of the community to have a broader understanding of the #EndFGM landscape in Bristol.

Lunch will be provided.

Layla Ismail, Development Manager, Refugee Women of Bristol
