The Casey Review: Integration of Britain's most isolated and deprived communities

Topic

This report sets out the findings of a review into the integration of Britain's most isolated and deprived communities. It includes an examination of social integration, public attitudes to integration and migration, social and economic exclusion across various domains, trends in religion and hate crime. It also explores the past and current approaches to community cohesion and makes the recommendations to promote integration in the UK, including:

  1. Build local communities’ resilience in the towns and cities where the greatest challenges exist, through the funding of projects for promoting English language skills, empowering marginalised women or tackling barriers to employment for the most socially isolated groups, for example.
  2. Establish a set of values around which people from all different backgrounds can unite.
  3. Reduce economic exclusion, inequality and segregation in the most isolated and deprived communities and schools.
  4. Increase standards of leadership and integrity in public office.
