Changing hearts, minds and families

Culture can be defined as the values, norms, and traditions that affect how individuals of a particular group perceive, think, interact, behave, and make judgments about their world.

This conference aims to support delegates to understand the role of culture in supporting women effected by FGM and Domestic Abuse in communities.

We will:

  • Discus how the lack of cultural awareness creates barriers in breaking the cycle of FGM and Domestic Abuse

  • Understand cultural need in designing and delivering services for women affected by FGM and Domestic Abuse

  • Explore practical issues and strategies for working with communities and multi-agencies locally, nationally and internationally.

A panel debate will give delegates the opportunity to understand the barriers to some effective methods of working against FGM and Domestic Abuse.

The conference is aimed at Local Legal practitioners, School leadership team members, Community organisations, the Corporate business sector, Children services, Safeguarding leads, Police and Commissioners, etc.

It is also important that we collectively improve preventions and early intervention strategies when targeting Female Genital Mutilation and Domestic Abuse. We are confident that this conference can help to shape local practice in achieving this aim.

Come to learn about good practice and hear experts’ perspectives on the importance of continuing professional development in the context of cultural awareness. Last but not least take advantage of another opportunity to network!

The event is organised by Allies Network and W.A.I.T.S. in collaboration with the Birmingham Commonwealth Association and Birmingham City University.
