In December 2016, Dame Louise Casey published her independent review of how to boost opportunity and integration in isolated and deprived communities. Since then the Department for Communities and Local Government has been reviewing the available evidence on the main causes of poor integration. In the coming months we will bring forward plans for tackling these issues through a new integration strategy.

There is currently an independent Review of Full Time Social Action by Young People, which is being led by Steve Holliday CBE. This aims to establish how many young people are engaged in full-time social action, as well as making recommendations to Government for how full-time social action can be supported in the future.
