Taking Action for Integration
How can we work together to create stronger and more cohesive communities?

Join us, as Maurice Wren (CEO of Refugee Council) talks about the importance of integration of refugees into our communities. As the Government publishes their ‘Integrated Communities Action Plan’ this event will highlight some of the key aspects that facilitate good integration and the challenges that exist for many communities in seeing this become a reality. This event will also highlight a recent evaluation of Action Foundation’s community led English classes, our plans to launch a Citywide Drop-in to improve social connection and the launch of our ‘Gift of Words’ appeal.
