Diversity refers to the fact that we are all different. Even though people have many things in common diversity recognises that people also have a lot of differences. This can be differences in religion, age, gender, beliefs and many more things we come across in daily life.
2. Describe the community you live in. Highlight some of the variations you may observe in terms of:
• Personal, social and cultural identities.
In the community I live in there are lots of variations of people. Most of the people who live on my street have children but there is also a lesbian couple and an American family. There are a few married couples who live opposite me whereas my next door neighbour is a single parent and to the other side of me is a retired couple. At the bottom of my street there is a block of flats and a few bungalows where the elderly live and also a small block of houses designed for and designated to disabled people.
Within the area I live there is a Christian church and also a congregation of Jehovah`s witnesses.
There are 3 parks for children to play at along with a football pitch and a sure start children’s centre. There are local pubs, takeaways and shops all within walking distance as well as a swimming pool gym and beauty salon.
