The Volunteer Organisers’ Forum was a valuable forum for volunteer coordinators across the city to come together, share best practice and network. There has been some interest from several quarters in re-establishing the forum and we are pleased to say that a group of us have decided to get things up and running again.  Please note that this event was previously organised by Voscur, but is now being organised by 1625IP, UWE Volunteering and University of Bristol Students' Union.

FGM affects over 200 million women and girls worldwide. This issue is becoming increasingly relevant to health and social care providers in this country and therefore a good understanding of the practice is important.

We are inviting all social and healthcare professionals including doctors, midwives, nurses, social workers, nursing and medical students to improve their understanding of the medical and psychological implications of FGM, discuss the importance of language used and ensure awareness of their professional legal obligations.
