Your identity, community and society

We will support you to develop your interests, participate in groups, clubs or voluntary work; meet other care leavers; celebrate and practice your faith. 

If you have religious beliefs we will respect them and work with you to create a plan which meets your religious and cultural needs. We will also celebrate your religious festivals with you. This will include ensuring that you have opportunities to practice your religion and will give support with travel to get there if you need it.

 

Your Identity

We know that your identity and culture are important parts of who you are. We will support you to maintain these by helping you to stay connected with the people, areas, values, behaviours and traditions that are important to you. We will help you with any questions you may have about your past through meaningful life story work, and we will help you celebrate the events that are important to you.

If you identify as LGBTQ, we will help you to access relevant information and support that you may need.
