Bridging the Gap

Enriching families by equipping, developing, transforming, and adding value to their lives

Whether you’re a parent, child, young person, community leader or practitioner, we can work with you

AFiUK primarily exists to serve the interests of African and other ethnic minority families where the parents were born and educated overseas, while their children have been born in the UK, often creating a clash of cultural identities for all concerned. Particularly, these children and young people do not identify either with their parents’ culture, nor that of the UK; instead they are evolving a new culture and identity, something that’s fresh and unique to themselves: a third culture. 

Support for you

AFiUK acknowledges that as parents and practitioners, we need to adapt the way we interact and relate to the children in our care, to help them reach their highest potential. We offer training and support to help parents adapt their parenting styles, as well as collaborations with practitioners in the wider community, to ensure that our partner families are served with cultural sensitivity and relevance.
