Looking at diversity in its truest sense, here we aim to increase awareness and understanding of diversity and equality issues and how this can be reflected in day to day life, offering a variety of links that will encourage a wider knowledge of equality, disability and creative activities linked to inclusion.
Britkid is aimed at young people who do not live or go to school in areas which are ethnically mixed. Its main target audience is people who are not themselves from minority ethnic groups, though it's been found to be very popular with minority ethnic young people who live in areas where they are in a minority.
Young people who have daily personal experience of multicultural Britain may find the site interesting, but it is not intended to address the details and complexities of their experiences.
The key element of the site is a group of fictionalised young characters from different ethnic groups (all based upon extensive research) who discuss and argue about aspects of their lives and can be accessed here
Britkid's author, Professor Chris Gaine, has focussed for over 25 years on young people's racial attitudes, writing books and training materials as well as giving talks and training all over Europe and the UK.
Using 'Britkid The Linking Network' this activity focuses on the different views that we may each have of where we live, and the relationship between identity and place.
