Response to call for evidence for inquiry into intergenerational connection

The All Party Parliamentary Group (APPG) on Social Integration has received an excellent selection of submissions from a diverse range of individuals and organisations to its call for evidence on intergenerational connection, which closed on 7th September 2018.

Commenting on these submissions, the APPG Chair, Chuka Umunna MP, said:

‘We are delighted that so many individuals and organisations have come forward to share their knowledge and ideas on intergenerational connection by responding to our call for evidence. I am hopeful that our interim report in early 2019 will succeed in drawing together the insights and evidence we have received to set out a policy framework for uniting the different generations of our country.’
