Community Cohesion

Volume 705: debated on Wednesday 19 November 2008

asked Her Majesty's Government:

What assessment they have made of the effect of single group funding on community cohesion. [HL6347]

The Commission on Integration and Cohesion (CIC), which made its recommendations in the summer of 2006, was concerned that groups based on single identities were potentially divisive. In February 2008 the government launched a consultation on Cohesion Guidance for Funders which sought views on this issue. A summary of the responses to this consultation exercise and a decision regarding the future of the guidance will be published shortly.
