To address this, we will bring forward a new integration strategy, which will seek to help people in more isolated communities to engage with the wider world, help women in particular into the workplace, and teach more people to speak English.
On March 14th 2018, Communities Secretary, Sajid Javid, set out a long term plan – the Integrated Communities Strategy green paper – which aims to tackle the root causes of poor integration. £50 million will be committed to the plan over the next two years, which aims to boost English language skills, increase economic opportunities for women and ensure that every child receives an education which prepares them for modern Britain. As the proposed strategy has already been launched, this one can be marked as ‘done’.
