Underlying the recent rejection of past decades’ political certainties is the belief among many communities that they have been cut off from the wider country. The UK’s economic divisions are widely acknowledged, but inequalities of education and health outcomes also abound, and prospects for social mobility vary across the country.

Public policy should aim to create strong, vibrant communities where civil society can contribute to a sustainable national social, economic and cultural settlement, and ensure no community feels left behind in post-Brexit Britain.
