For integration, an oath is not enough

In the wake of the Casey Review, which examined integration in the UK, the idea of swearing an oath on British values has gained traction across media and political discourse. At Wonder, we appreciate the Review’s role in highlighting the plight of women who have been marginalised by their poor English language skills, but believe that discussions around the idea of an oath obscure the real need to invest in tailored language provision and cross-community initiatives.

To overcome social exclusion, help the most vulnerable migrant and refugee women learn English
