Welcome

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

The APPG brings together Parliamentarians from all political parties with an interest in the issue. The group's mission is to drive forward a cross-party conversation on policy solutions to break down barriers to integration and create opportunities for people from all walks of life to build bonds of trust.

The APPG is chaired by Chuka Umunna MP, with the Secretariat provided by The Challenge, the UK’s leading social integration charity.

The APPG will hold regular meetings featuring guest speakers, agree draft policy reports, and take evidence from individuals and organisations.

The direction and the focus areas of the APPG’s work will be decided by its members – potential areas of focus include how the government and local authorities could better support communities to manage rapid demographic change; and the manner in which the UK’s school system and housing policies contribute to and could be reformed so as to remedy social divides.

 

General Elections Notice

Following the decision to hold an early General Election in June 2017, Parliament will be dissolved from 3 May 2017 until 8 June 2017. During the dissolution period, there are no Members of Parliament and therefore no All-Party Parliamentary Groups. In line with Parliamentary rules, we will suspend our activity until 8 June 2017. We will not make public comment or media appearances, hold events, undertake research or issue communications, or allow others to do so in our name. Our website and social media channels will not be monitored or updated. 
We are sorry for any inconvenience this may cause you. We are hoping to resume our activities as planned after the General Election has taken place.
