ARE YOU IN DANGER?

CALL THE FGM HOTLINE ON 1800 522 707 FOR HELP

If you fear you are in danger of female circumcision or FGM, then you can act to protect yourself. There are laws in Australia which are designed to protect girls from FGM.

IF YOU SEEK HELP, YOUR PARENTS WILL NOT BE IN TROUBLE WITH THE LAW IF THEY HAVE NOT DONE ANYTHING YET.

You can get a child protection order which will keep you safe, and protect your parents from committing a criminal act.
There are protection orders available in every state which mean that a parent is under instruction not to do FGM.
THIS DOES NOT MEAN YOU WILL BE TAKEN AWAY FROM YOUR PARENTS

If you are in immediate danger, please call the police on 000
