Save The Woman (STW) is an African-led organisation registered in England and Wales. We work primarily with women and families providing Advocacy, Skills and Empowerment. Vulnerable clients include offenders and ex-offenders, families with children in care, vulnerable people, especially the African, Asian and Minority Ethnic (AAME) Community but serves all Communities.
Many of us were erroneously made to believe that parenting has no manual until we arrived here and noticed that the reason why many families come into contact with child protection and safeguarding issues are very minor issues. Taking into account the concerns of over-representation of Black African & African-Caribbean children in the care system. To tackle this disparity of older black children in the care system we have created an innovative course on Africentric Parenting Skills. It gives guidance on the needs of children and expectations of parents in the UK.
This Parenting Skills Course is essential knowledge for anyone that has school-aged children, nephews, nieces or grandchildren, evident from the beneficiaries’ feedback, this course has continued to enlighten parents and parents to be, especially new arrival migrants on the law and regulations in the UK.
Some of those issues making up key areas of the programme include:
• The Teen brain – recognising changes taking place during teenage years.
• The link between behaviour and communicating difficult feelings.
• Maintaining your relationship with good communication.
• Understanding risk taking behaviour.
• How to negotiate and reduce conflict.
• Keeping Teens safe.
Our Africentric Parenting Skills Programme supports parents seeking the best for their children and provides a road map for parenting effectively in a different cultural environment and is being rolled out across the country due to its success.
“Following our intervention and early support of strategic plans, in the project’s first year, thirteen (13) children safely returned while twenty-two (22) children were stopped from entering the care system, and we directly empowered and supported hundreds more families through the Africentric parenting skills course.”
