Event Details

Faith Leaders' Summit, West Midlands

 

AFRUCA’s ‘Working with faith Organisations to safeguard Black and African Children in the West Midlands’ project have achieved a lot in 10 months. 413 Black and African parents have better knowledge of Child Protection and Positive Parenting. 180 children are able to recognise abuse and safeguard themselves from harm. 8 places of worship have developed and implemented safeguarding policies and procedures. 36 faith leaders and workers are better equipped to safeguard children within the place of worship and 6 parents were given face-to-face advice by our specialist family support team.

 

The first Faith Leaders’ Summit held in June was quite successful with presentations, discussions and networking. Faith leaders were able clarify issues from representatives of the West Midlands police and Birmingham Safeguarding Children Board present.

Organiser

Africans Unite Against Child Abuse (AFRUCA)

Africans Unite against Child Abuse (AFRUCA) was established in May 2001 as a platform for advocating for the rights and welfare of African children following the deaths of children like Victoria Climbie, Jude Akapa and Damilola Taylor in the UK. It became a registered Charity in July 2002 and a Company Limited by Guarantee in October 2001 with a Board of Directors appointed to run the organization. AFRUCA is embedded in and has developed out of African communities in the UK as a response to their realization of the problems African children and parents face and the gaps that exist within the child protection system for African children in the country. The main focus of our work is Prevention and Early Intervention. The 1989 UN Convention on the Rights of The Child and the UK Children’s Acts of 1989 and 2004 provide the foundation for all our work at AFRUCA. We aim to promote the best interests of the child in all our activities. Our stance is that culture and religion should never be a reason to abuse children.
