The Government published the Integrated Communities Strategy Green Paper in March 2018, inviting views on our vision for building strong integrated communities where people – whatever their background – live, work, learn and socialise together, based on shared rights, responsibilities and opportunities. In February 2019, we published the Integrated Communities Action Plan alongside the Government’s response to the consultation on the Green Paper. This set out the actions that Government will take to create socially and economically stronger, more confident and integrated communities. These documents were published in English.

Assisting the public to understand the threat from extremism is the responsibility of the Home Office. The independent Commission for Countering Extremism published the findings from their call for evidence earlier this month, which was the first public consultation on extremism. The Commission’s full study into the threat we face from extremism and the current response, including advice on new policies to tackle it, will be published in the autumn in English and Welsh.
