Asylum Matters has produced guidance to support local organisations who are interested in submitting a response to the Government’s consultation on its Integrated Communities Green Paper. The strategy sets out the government’s vision for building strong and integrated communities, and proposes a number of actions to deliver this at a local and national level. This consultation offers an opportunity for local actors to ensure that local experiences of bringing together refugees and people seeking asylum with resident communities are reflected in the final strategy. Indeed, the Government has committed to “work with civil society and others to increase integration support available to those recognised as refugees after arrival in the UK.”
To support local groups in pulling together a response, Asylum Matters has drafted some key messages and suggested which types of case studies or examples might be useful to include in response to the questions in the consultation (see attached). You can find details on how to respond to the questions here and the deadline for responses is 23:45 on Tuesday 5th June 2018. If you have any questions, feel free to get in touch.
