Culture 2018

When working with children and young people, it can be really helpful to have an understanding of the culture that the young people are growing up in. Understanding the context which informs their behaviours, ideas and attitudes can help us to build bridges and find ways to communicate more effectively.

Though no report is a substitute for a conversation with a young person, these documents may give you some helpful background and a starting point.DSC_3445
