Local actions to promote social integration – Case studies
by Dr Madeleine Mosse
While there exists a good body of evidence on social integration in the UK, little has been done previously to draw together evidence from different sources and provide local government, charities and other organisations with practical tools to help them to tackle issues that affect their communities.
This report, produced in collaboration with the Paul Hamlyn Foundation, focuses on case studies of support for recently arrived migrants and refugees, with a particular emphasis on young people. The case studies describe a range of activities, undertaken by local councils, Police, voluntary organisations, schools and partnerships. They cover arrangements from welcoming and supporting newly arrived migrants, help with learning English, tackling community tensions and identifying modern slavery.
