A framework giving advice on how to treat refugees and migrants has been produced by the Home Office.
It says the 'Indicators of Integration' framework is a resource for local authorities, charities and those working with groups in society at risk of poor integration.
It has been produced by the Home Office in collaboration with a group of leading academics with input from local authorities, charities and refugees themselves.
Professionals will be able to use the framework to develop strategies and assess the effectiveness of integration based on fourteen key areas including work, education, housing, health and culture.
They will also have access through an accompanying toolkit to common questions and tools for measuring impact.
Immigration minister Caroline Nokes said: 'The UK has a proud history of providing protection to those that need it and we are committed to supporting individuals integrate and rebuild their lives here.
'This important report will help organisations across the UK meet the vital needs of refugees and migrants as they make this country their home.'
