Much more than awareness of cultural differences.  Cultural competence is the ability to understand, communicate with, and effectively interact with people across cultures’. Cultural responsiveness is using your understanding to ensure you can provide the most positive effective interaction, service or outcome. 

To work toward cultural responsiveness, individuals and organisations look internally and externally for a deeper understanding of their own culture and the cultures of the people they serve, and apply the knowledge they gain to develop culturally equitable and effective provision and services.

  • Jhardine facilitated the session well, encouraging reflection and group discussion. As a team we came away with ideas about how we can adapt the multi-agency Rethink Forums we facilitate (as well as other sessions), to include better discussions about ethnicity and culture and the role this has in relation to the experiences of children and families in Leeds.
