Integration

We work to raise the profile of integration, with policy recommendations to increase contact between people from different backgrounds.

We need to think about integration and social connection in a new way – refusing to divide people into ‘Them and Us’, whether that’s about migrants, ethnic minorities or British Muslims.

We put forward concrete ideas to make integration an ‘everybody’ issue, shaping a ‘New Us’ so we can all feel part of a country that is closer, kinder and more connected.

British Future was one of a broad coalition of voices calling for the 2020s to be a ‘Decade of reconnection’ – and is now an integral part of the Together Coalition carrying this work forward.

British Future is the secretariat to the All-Party Parliamentary Group on Social Integration. Click here for more information on the APPG, and here for the APPG website.
