This paper analyses the views of refugees and migrants1 who participated in The Forum’s activities between September 2013 and June 2014, and finds that loneliness and isolation are the major challenges that they face in the UK. Interviews were undertaken with people who participate in The Forum’s New Beginnings mentoring project and stakeholders with experience in integration, health and social issues and services. Data were also drawn from information gathered by The Forum as part of its mentoring project and from its database. The research team participated with The Forum's members in activities and educational workshops, studied the policy context and conducted a modest review on previous research on integration issues, isolation and loneliness.
