Inclusive Cities Phase II: Action Plans 2022


Inclusive Cities is a knowledge exchange programme which aims to support 12 local authorities from across all nations of the UK to create a step change in their approach to the inclusion of newcomers at the local level. Inclusive Cities is led by the Global Exchange in Migration and Diversity at the University of Oxford. 

These Action Plans, prepared during Phase II of the Inclusive Cities programme, bring together in one place what participating cities and their partners are doing to support the inclusion of migrants and longer standing residents. The Plans outline the priorities of, and practical initiatives undertaken by, the city and its partners to broaden opportunities for and better integrate all residents across the economic, social, and civic life of the city.  

Action Plans include a local case study to highlight a good practice or novel approach.
