Self-identity is a key factor in the care and development of
children and young people. A high level of importance is focussed
towards a child / young person’s gender, disability, race, colour,
nationality, ethnic or national origin and sexuality. The child /
young person’s identity and belonging in respect to immediate and
extended family is also a focussed part of self identity
assessment, recognition and work.

where the key factors relating to self-identity are identified and
objectives, targets and tasks are set.
