AFRUCA – Safeguarding Children was established in May 2001, as a platform for advocating and promoting the wellbeing and protection of Black and African children in the UK. Our Head Office is in London. We run a Centre for Black and Ethnic Children and Families in Manchester. We also run projects working with communities on Safeguarding Children across various ethnic groups. In February 2020, AFRUCA formally changed its name from Africans Unite Against Child Abuse to AFRUCA – Safeguarding Children.
