Identity is who you are, the way you think about yourself; it is shaped by the way you are viewed by the world and the characteristics that define you.

 

An individual’s identity, the traditions that mean a lot to them, and the communities or other groups to which a person feels a sense of belonging, are likely to affect their behaviour profoundly. Each person’s identity is unique and is made up of a number of different aspects. We live in a society in which the local aspects of identity are not always as strong as they once were. In a world where information and images can be beamed across the planet in microseconds, there is a greater sense of global human identity than would have been the case 30 years ago. For many people living in the UK today, especially those whose families have links to other countries, there are additional aspects of identity - traditions, languages, cultural practices - to be maintained alongside an identity as British. 

 

REConnecting Lincolnshire is working with teachers, children and young people and families to enable young people to explore issues related to their own identities.
