Story

Bringing People Together : Africentric Parenting Skills Course in the UK

We are driven by the views expressed by Shirley Chisholm, first African American woman to be elected to Congress: “You don’t make progress by standing on the sidelines, whimpering and complaining. You make progress by implementing ideas”.

This project would not have been possible without the support of Together Middlesbrough & Cleveland, Family Mediation Centre and Destiny Creations C.I.C. Although Partnership working is valuable in itself, in this case, the Partnership was vital as there is a manual on parenting here in the United Kingdom. Both Family Mediation Centre and Destiny Creations C.I.C were able to facilitate the course using their expertise. The experience of parents captured through advocacy, casework and gathering information has enabled three organisations to give a picture of the circumstance of children in care.

Through the feedback forms completed by the participants, it is clear the world of difference this course has made to the lives of families.

According to one of the beneficiaries of Africentric Parenting Skills Course 101, in her statement "who said there wasn't a manual to parenting?, I keep on saying there is manual, there is something, why was this course not there years ago?, why didn't we have this course, I wish we have this course years ago, I have learned so much, is like a life saver, you said your prayer, and God answer your prayer, He brought this course at the right time".

We need more capital funding support for the listed activities below

– To run more Africentric Parenting Skills 101 cycles

– To run more Africentric Parenting Skills 201

– To develop and deliver Africentric Parenting Skills 301 – engaging with UK structures; in development, pilot to run in August 2021.

– To recruit & train Community Advocates

– To recruit & train an Administrator

– To recruit & train Case Workers

We aim to promote the aspirations of Africa and its Diaspora; in particular to promote culture, values, economic and socio-political initiatives in Teesside.

Imagine if your heritage or lineage was slowly on decline, what would be your faith?, Please let us collectively join hands and make good things happen!!

Help us promote equality and diversity, and thank you in anticipation for your donations and support. Every penny will counts, and also help us share through your contacts.

    We have now reached a 2% milestone of our target.. please help us donate and share this page widely. Speaking to Teesside Live, one parent said: "The memories never disappear. It just becomes less each day but it is a memory which will never be erased. "We hoped the truth would come out and our only concern was that it would come in time to get a just solution." In light of the article, it is saddened for history repeating itself!

    Thank you to all the supporter, https://youtu.be/9YntqXtptpA Teesside Live article published 16 January 2022 titled "Cleveland child sex abuse scandal: 100 children snatched from families in the dark of night". The article buttressed that “Some were placed in foster homes, but the most unfortunate children were forced to stay on a ward at a local hospital here in Middlesbrough. It later transpired that the vast majority of the young children should never have been snatched away from their families in the first place”

    Thank you so much for your support and generous donations... on the 9th July 2022, a parent said this "This #Africentric #parenting training is really powerful and helpful, it has improved my relationship with my kids a lot, especially the way we communicate and react to issues, this training has taught me to be patient with them and correct them with love , when they put up challenging behaviour. I have also learnt to reward good behaviour. Thanks a lot."
