In July 2017, the department made over £1.6 million available from our Innovation Programme to Barnardo’s to run the National FGM (Female Genital Mutilation) Centre for three years. The proportion of the centre’s costs to be paid by the department reduces year by year, with the centre to be self-sustaining from April 2020. The University of Bedfordshire is evaluating the centre and the evaluation is due to be completed by July this year.
