To The Editor,

Dear Sir/Madam,

As UKIP's Women's and Equalities spokesperson, I was most concerned when I read that The Acton FGM Community Clinic will be forced to close after March as it has lost its funding.

The clinic is a specialist service dedicated to help women who are suffering the mental and physical health consequences of Female Genital Mutilation. 


I understand the clinic was set up in 2007 to provide a specialist service for women with FGM and has helped more than 1,000 women - many have "this service changed my life after suffering years of pain".

Indeed, the clinic has helped women from across the UK, not just Ealing area - I implore Ealing Council to look again this crucial funding issue.

You can sign an online petition to save the clinic at Save The Action FGM Community Clinic.

Yours faithfully,

Margot Parker, UKIP MEP and the party's Women's and Equalities spokesperson
