AFRUCA has produced a 32-minute documentary to help capture its work safeguarding children in the UK over the 20 years of its existence.

Two private screenings with specially invited guests were held in its Head Office in Hackney on 15 June and 12 July 2022 . The documentary reflects AFRUCA’s history, journey, challenges, success stories and future plans. The documentary features service users, former and present staff, practitioners, policymakers and politicians all of whom have been involved and are familiar with AFRUCA’s work over many years.

Prominent among attendees at both events were Professor Kurt Barling, former BBC London Special Correspondent; Councillor Michael Situ, Deputy Mayor, London Borough of Southwark, Cllr Sade Etti, mayoral advisor, London Borough of Hackney, Councillor Susan Fajana Thomas, Cabinet Member for Community Safety and Regulatory Services, London Borough of Hackney and Sanchia Alachia, former Mayor, London Borough of Barking and Dagenham.

Following the film screenings, attendees used the Q&A session to discuss with AFRUCA’s Founder, Debbie Ariyo OBE, about AFRUCA’S work and aspirations, and to pledge their full support for the charity.
