Africans Unite against Child Abuse (AFRUCA) was established in May 2001 as a platform for advocating for the welfare of African children following the deaths of a number of newly-arrived children in the UK. It became a registered Charity in July 2002 and a Company Limited by Guarantee in October 2002 with a Board of Directors appointed to run the organisation.
AFRUCA prides itself as the premier charity promoting the welfare of African children in the UK.
AFRUCA are establishing a Council of Elders to help strengthen the community engagement opportunities and to enable it to be more responsive to the needs of African communities, parents and children in the UK.
AFRUCA wants to retain and gain from the guidance, sage advice, life and work experiences of people from African Communities by appointing them to the Council of Elders. The Council will act in an advisory capacity and as a sounding board for new ideas and developments in AFRUCA.
