The Challenge has been providing Secretariat support to the Social Integration Commission. This independent body, chaired by CEO of the RSA, Matthew Taylor, is exploring the impact of a lack of social integration on the UK.

Last month, the Commission launched its second report, ‘Social Integration: A wake-up call’.

The report found that the cost to the UK of a lack of social integration between people of different ages, incomes and ethnicities is around £6 billion a year (equivalent to 0.5 per cent of total GDP).

You can see a short video of the findings here. The report has also received media coverage in The Independent and The Mirror.

Visit the Commission website to find out more and to sign up to receive regular updates.
