Poll: Most Britons do not feel part of their community

Most Britons do not feel part of their community and rarely socialise with people in their area, according to a survey.

Only two-fifths (42%) said they felt part of their neighbourhood and 64% of people said they rarely or never socialise with people from their area.

Only around a half (53%) said they felt their local communities were receptive to newcomers regardless of gender, ethnicity, sexuality, disability, religion or political belief, a poll released by the Holocaust Memorial Day Trust showed.
