Social Investment Insights: Investing in integration

Region | 

There are almost 170,000 refugees and asylum seekers in the UK, which looks set to increase

  • Refugees and asylum seekers face extraordinary challenges in fully integrating into British life, affecting their personal development, community cohesion and public services 
  • Social investment could help provide a new source of capital to support innovative approaches to addressing complex and unmet refugee and asylum seekers needs in the UK
  • The UK should consider investing in innovative interventions for refugees and asylum seekers used in other countries, as well as develop a long-term strategy to investing in integration
