Family Affair

Family Affair is a consultation on how to support and address the clash of western and African cultures, values and behaviours that creates such a challenge to young Africans growing up in the UK.  It is also a dialogue between the older and younger generations on these issues.  Although the work is specifically targeting ‘2nd generation immigrants’ from African communities, at the heart of it is “inclusion”.  The workshops also provide an opportunity to look at parallel issues in non-African communities with “acceptance” within families.
