Moving Up Together addresses the question of why some migrant and minority communities in the UK are falling behind. It also assesses which policy interventions will promote greater equality and integration.
Focusing on four case study communities, of people born in Bangladesh, Iran, Nigeria and Somalia, we examine their labour market participation, qualifications and progress towards equality, their own
perceptions of their 'integration', and how their fortunes might change over generations.
The report makes recommendations for:
- Integration policy
- Regional and local planning of services, including education and English language courses
- Supporting people into employment
- Welfare-to-work provision
- Addressing in-work poverty
- Housing policy
- Supporting migrant and refugee community organisations.
Although specific to the four groups we examined, we hope that many of our recommendations will also benefit other migrant and minority communities.
