· Driving forward partnership working to enable prevention, support and protection for victims and those at risk
· How the new forced marriage legislation will be enforced and how this can be used in tandem with FMPOs to increase choice for individuals
· Examining how to equip the health workforce with the knowledge to identify FGM and report into clear structures that eliminate the opportunity for delay and ensures accountability for successful outcomes
· Discovering how ACPO and the Metropolitan Police Service are strengthening the police response to HBV, FM and FGM
· Gaining transferable advice from a college and local authority panel that has overcome barriers to information sharing
