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.
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.
AFRUCA offers a therapeutic service for African children, young people and families who have survived or have been at risk of undergoing FGM and Human Trafficking.
