WHO ARE WE?
We are an organization supporting parents bringing up black children particularly when parenting is draining your energy or do you have Safeguarding or Child Protection issues. We will hold your hand, advocate for you with your Local Authority as well as address any issues flagged up.
We empower parents, train them putting into consideration their cultural background. We are different from your regular parenting class providers. We don't put parents down rather we help reinforce your strength, horn your parenting ability and enable you learn to do parenting the legally compliant way.
We have supported parents in almost all UK councils as well as worked alongside local authorities (We have so far worked with Tameside, Hartlepool, Manchester, Middlesborough, Southwark, Sheffield, Harrow, Sunderland, Westminster, Hillingdon, Edinburgh, Wrexham councils) and relevant bodies to support and engage identified vulnerable families with complex problems such as those affected by separation, child protection matters, domestic violence and mental health illness with the strategic aim of reducing the number of children going into care, custody, drug peddling and gang life. We also provide programs to help the young people cope, regain their confidence and focus to achieve their dreams. We do this by providing direct support to parents and young people, advocating or accompanying them to Social Services conferences to ensure they understand the processes and get their voices heard. We also organize workshops for young people and families experiencing crisis or separation where we create awareness of mental health challenges incidental to crisis and helping parents navigate through teenage challenges and offering mentoring to young people. This is aimed at sensitizing them to the dangers of drug peddling, how to stay clear form predators and money management. Our workshops also offer young people a conducive environment to share their perspectives and get their voices heard by their families.
To assist parents who are struggling with their parenting skills to meet expectations we have developed a comprehensive curriculum to address this and so offer specialist customized and adapted parental training for African/Caribbean and ethnic minority families especially families facing Local authority child protection issues.
Our workshops are to enlighten parents on laws and regulations around child protection and safeguarding in the UK; To promote better understanding between parents, their children and young people and Teaching children to understand family values.
Our Family Round Table Workshops has helped many families especially Navigating through Teenage Stuff since its inception in 2014.
We also help people recovering from substance abuse, offer mental heath awareness courses, advise and information and women empowerment programs in conjunction with Goodnews Bible Church, London.
We will be glad to offer our services up and down the UK in partnership with local authorities or other organisations to help parents who have experienced mental health illnesses or those left feeling lost and powerless and prone to mental health sicknesses and can't afford sustained independent medical treatment. This is where we come in to provide that emotional support and mental health awareness.
