Supporting Positive Cultural Identity for Children and Young People from Multicultural Backgrounds (Online)

Specialist topics

Do you care for a child from a cultural background different to yours?

This workshop is designed to support kinship and foster carers to support children and young people in their care from diverse cultural and linguistic backgrounds to maintain and continue to develop a positive cultural identity. A strong cultural identity is important to a child’s mental health and wellbeing. Having a strong sense of their own cultural history and traditions helps children build a positive cultural identity for themselves, gives them a sense of belonging and self-esteem and supports their overall wellbeing. When children have a strong cultural identity, they are well-placed to make social connections with others and develop a sense of belonging to their community, even if the community's cultures are different to their family culture.
