What’s happened to social connections during the COVID crisis?

The All Party Parliamentary Group on Social Integration, which British Future is the secretariat for, has released a new report, Building stronger communities in post-pandemic Britain’. 

This report details the findings from the APPG’s second inquiry into social connection during the Covid-19 crisis, which examined in detail the role that business and the voluntary sector played in improving social integration throughout the pandemic. It asks what lessons we can learn in the long term and makes a series of recommendations to government, business, and the voluntary sector to help build on the upsurge in new volunteers seen over lockdown, and to retain the increased role played by businesses in supporting their local communities.
