Many African parent-students come to the UK sent by their governments or on scholarship programmes to study at universities across the country. Most of these students arrive in the UK without being given adequate information that helps them to familiarise themselves with the culture and norms as well as to understand the UK’s law on children’s welfare.

AFRUCA, as the UK’s leading charity in safeguarding African children and supporting families, has been at the forefront of providing seminars, trainings and workshops to parents and carers to educate them on raising their children in line with the UK’s law.

As part of AFRUCA’s strategy on participation to educate black and ethnic minorities of the importance of good parenting, on 9th July 2022 Debbie Ariyo OBE, CEO of AFRUCA, gave a lecture to parent-students who are studying at the University of Lincoln. This ‘Parenting in The UK’ seminar was organised by the Health Gospel CIC.

AFRUCA was delighted to participate in the special event to help parent-students integrate into mainstream society.
