The Casey Review: a review into opportunity and integration

ESOL
Skills for Life Network

In July 2015, at the request of the then Prime Minister and Home Secretary, Dame Louise Casey was asked to undertake a review into integration and opportunity in our most isolated and deprived communities. This report sets out the findings of that review.

The report considers immigration and patterns of settlement; the extent to which people from different backgrounds mix and get on together; how different communities – considering ethnic and faith groups in particular – have fared economically and socially; and some of the issues that are driving inequality and division in society; and it makes recommendations on what we should do next in a new programme to help unite Britain.

The report emphasises that greater proficiency in English leads to better integration and social cohesion, as well clear progression opportunities from English Language (ESOL) classes to further and higher education and/or enhanced employment prospects, allowing migrants to reach their full economic potential.
