OUR MISSION. AFRUCA is embedded in and has developed out of BME communities in the UK as a response to their realization of the problems young people and their families and their families face and the gaps that exist within the child protection system for BME communities 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 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.
The 1989 United Nation Convention on the Rights of the Child forms the basis of our work at AFRUCA. Our mission is to promote the rights and welfare of young people and families in BME communities. With a presence in two UK cities (London and Manchester) and projects working with children, young people and families across London and in Manchester, Birmingham, Coventry and other cities, we are undeniably the voice of the BME Child in the UK. Our national spread means we have become accessible enough to be regarded as the first point of contact for those interested in the welfare of BME children
