Brokenshire announces plans to improve integration

The Government has announced new measures to help immigrants integrate with their communities.

It says measures proposed in a green paper will 'create stronger, more confident and integrated communities, where people, whatever their background, can live, work, learn and socialise together, based on shared rights, responsibilities and opportunities.'

This includes 'creating opportunities for people to mix with those from other backgrounds, boosting English language skills, and supporting migrants to develop a good understanding of life in England.'

Plans include publishing a 'guide to action' which will ensure that 'communities across the country, whatever their local interest, have access to the information and advice to enable them to improve their local area.'

This could include taking 'much loved local assets' into community ownership.

Communities secretary James Brokenshire MP said: 'We are a successful, diverse democracy – open, tolerant and welcoming. These characteristics are as British as queuing and talking about the weather.

'However, we cannot ignore the fact that too many places across the country have divides, the benefits and opportunities our great country offers are not always felt by everyone equally.

'Our new action plan charts a course for how we will engage and work with communities to bring people together in recognition that there is more that binds than divides us.'
