Citizenship and Integration Initiative Interim Report
Trust for London, in partnership with Unbound Philanthropy and the Paul Hamlyn Foundation, has established an initiative to ensure that Londoners of all backgrounds can contribute to the life of the city as active, socially integrated citizens.
The Citizenship and Integration Initiative (CII) is a pooled fund to support work on citizenship and integration in London. A number of independent funders are contributing to this fund which aims to raise and distribute £1 million over four years between 2017 and 2022. The Mayor of London has appointed a Deputy Mayor for Social Integration, and the Greater London Authority (GLA) have made an equivalent investment into their new Social Integration team.
Below is the interim report which details the outcomes and learning from the Initiative to date.

London needs a pay rise. 1 in 5 Londoners are low-paid, and most Londoners in poverty are now from working families. We need more employers to pay the living wage, to help ordinary people get by in the capital.
