Child Protection Manuals

AFRUCA publishes training manuals on Child Protection in both English and French.

Safeguarding African Children

AFRUCA has produced the “Safeguarding African Children in the UK” series of publications to highlight different safeguarding issues and to assist members of the African community in the UK to know more about different forms of child abuse and how to identify the signs so children can be safe and be better protected.

AFRUCA Research Series – Voices of the Community

AFRUCA has developed a new research programme to explore key safeguarding issues in African communities in the UK. We aim to create a body of knowledge to help inform policy and practice on safeguarding issues. It is our hope that many of the community projects developed can be further investigated through in-depth academic research.

Africa Day 2017 – the Return of Slavery

Africa Day 2017 – the Return of Slavery

Today marks the day set aside to celebrate the rise of Africa. On the 25th of May 1963, The Organisation of African Unity (OAU) was set up to help promote the welfare of Africans, push for reforms to support the growth of African countries, many of whom were at the time gaining independence from decades of colonialism, preceded by the massive plundering and slave-trading of African people which occurred from the 16th century towards the end of the 19th century. OAU was later renamed the African Union to further entrench the spirit of brotherhood and partnership among African countries.
