APPG on Social Integration – Embargoed Report

Today (Wednesday 27th October) the All Party Parliamentary Group on Social Integration released a new report, Building stronger communities in post-pandemic Britain. A copy of the report can be found here:

British Future is the secretariat to the APPG.

This report details the findings from the APPG’s second inquiry into social connection during the Covid-19 crisis, which examined in detail the role that business and the voluntary sector played in improving social integration throughout the pandemic. It asks what lessons we can learn in the long term and makes a series of recommendations to government, business, and the voluntary sector to help build on the upsurge in new volunteers seen over lockdown, and to retain the increased role played by businesses in supporting their local communities.

British Futures will also discuss the findings and key themes in more detail in a webinar, hosted by British Future, on Tuesday 2nd November, 1.30pm-2.45pm. The panel – including representatives from the Royal Voluntary Service, and the Federation of Small Businesses – will then consider whether the forthcoming Levelling Up white paper offers the chance to build a more integrated and connected society.
