Self Identity

Self Identity

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.

The Psychologists assessment and placement planning process is where the key factors relating to self-identity are identified and objectives, targets and tasks are set.

Whilst Hillside is not able to provide and respond to all aspects of needs related to self identity we have built community links and continue to make community links in response to an individual need i.e. links to local religious orders and groups.
