ABOUT THE COMMISSION
The Commission on the Integration of Refugees is an independent commission that aims to improve the integration of refugees. It strives for a society where everyone, including refugees, feels welcome and part of a strong, cohesive community. Bringing together opposing views and diverse experiences from across the UK, the Commission will hear from refugees, host communities, faith and community leaders, security forces and healthcare professionals. They will work together to overcome differences and find common ground on how to fix the broken system with practical solutions. The Commission is convened and funded by the Woolf Institute and will run from September 2022 to December 2023.

The Commission on the Integration of Refugees is led by our Commissioners, who are community leaders, professionals, academics and policy makers from across civil society and the public sector. Several have lived experience of the refugee and asylum system themselves. They will share their own extensive knowledge and experience, as well as collect evidence from a wide variety of stakeholders and organisations.
