We need to build the capacity of our leaders to promote and achieve integration outcomes. Do you agree?
This is from the Integrated Communities Strategy Green Paper (PDF), produced by the Ministry of Housing, Communities and Local Government (MHCLG), in March 2018.
The Green Paper invites views through public consultation on the government’s proposals to realise our vision of a society where people of all backgrounds get on with each other.
The paper proposes:
Measures to support recent migrants so that they have the information they need to integrate into society and understand British values and their rights and responsibilities
Core integration measures for national and local government to focus on
Measures to ensure that all children and young people are prepared for life in modern Britain and have the opportunity for meaningful social mixing with those from different backgrounds.
MHCLG are keen to hear from a wide range of interested parties from across local government, in the faith, voluntary, community and business sectors, and the general public.
The consultation will end on 5th June 2018.
Access the Government website to find out more about the consultation.
