Churches and sporting events are the last bastions of neighbourliness and integration in Britain, says a new report by the Social Integration Commission. Matthew Taylor, Chair of the Commission, said: “Institutions play a huge role in determining how and with whom we interact. Our research shows that, perhaps contrary to perceived wisdom, activities such as attending a place of worship or a sporting event can bring people from all sorts of backgrounds together. “These institutions could play a leading role in promoting social integration…. Sporting and religious bodies should explore what more they can do to help build a better integrated society.”
