UK's Commonwealth connections

Our Commonwealth connections affect our daily lives.
The UK's connections with other Commonwealth countries have a big impact on our everyday lives from the food we eat, the music we listen to and the teams we compete against at sport.

It's been found that six out of 10 people living in the UK have a relative living in another Commonwealth country.

Many people moved to the UK from Asia, the Caribbean and Africa. Others went to live in countries such as Australia, New Zealand and Canada.
