Breaking down barriers to integration

The All Party Parliamentary Group on Social Integration

Welcome to the website for the All Party Parliamentary Group (APPG) on Social Integration.

The APPG on Social Integration is a cross-party group of parliamentarians that aims to drive forward a cross-party conversation on policy solutions that break down barriers to integration and creates opportunities for people from all walks of life to connect with each other and build bonds of trust.

Our society is stronger when it is more connected. Getting integration right is something that should matter to everyone in Britain, whether you're newly-arrived here or can trace your ancestors back for centuries. People from different backgrounds living well together and having a shared sense of belonging helps make our communities more cohesive and resilient to those who try to foster divisions. The Social Integration APPG can play an important role in developing a consensus for approaches that can make a practical difference.
