We believe integration policy really matters. People aged under 55 living in the UK trust their neighbours less than in any other European country.  How we rebuild this trust and the connections between people is critically important; important for our economy and our society. 

Unfortunately, integration policy is not always well understood. This week we are using the blog to challenge some of the main misconceptions.

Today (Tuesday 18 June 2013) sees Nick Hurd MP, the Minister for Civil Society, launch Generation Change, a new coalition of specialist youth social action organisations aiming to increase the quality, quantity and impact of social action in the UK today.

I used to work with a colleague who whenever he was given a new task asked himself two questions
– Is it urgent?
– Is it important?

On May 25, a team of young people completed the Yorkshire Dales Three Peak Challenge. The team was comprised of 7 young people and 3 staff members from Manchester Deaf Centre (MDC) and 9 National Citizen Service (NCS) graduates. The group covered 17 miles of ascension in 12 hours, raising hundreds of pounds for MDC. 

During the Napoleonic Wars there was great fear in Britain of a French invasion.  People living near the coast were encouraged to keep on their guard for French ships and be wary of possible French spies in their midst.
