Cultural Identity

Young people who live between two cultures – a “British” way of life and the culture their parents grew up with – can face conflicts and challenges. It can be difficult to balance cultural traditions with the more “English” traditions. For these young people, cultural identity can be made up of influences which are not part of mainstream society and these can often be misunderstood and misinterpreted. This can lead to the young person struggling to know where they belong. They are likely to want to learn about their background but may be confused about how they connect with other cultures.

If a young person you care about is struggling with their identity, help them learn about their background by using books, looking at photos and creating a family tree.
