Hate Crime figures rose by 29% from 62,518 in 2015/2016 to 80,393 in 2016/2017, highlighting a dramatic rise and signalling a worrying change in what’s deemed acceptable today. Assistant Chief Constable and hate crime lead of the National Police Chiefs’ Council, Mark Hamilton, said: “Hate Crime, particularly among young people, undermines the diversity and tolerance that we should be celebrating.”

Hate Crime has risen among the five monitored strands, of which racially aggravated hate is the highest. It has also risen in other areas such as Misogynistic hate.

Our timely Conference, put together in the context of the Governments pledge to give this area renewed focus, has been created after in depth research with leading specialist, past delegates, and key stakeholders. We will examine issues contributing to hate crime and how to tackle them. You will hear from experts and front-line practitioners. You will also have the chance to network and share ideas on how to best collaborate.

Our conference is designed for all those working in the field of Hate Crime: in the Police Force and Criminal Justice system, Government departments and agencies, charities, community organisations, and youth groups. Here are some of the topics our key speakers will be discussing:

  • Understanding what is causing a national increase and recent trends
  • New Government initiatives for tackling the rise in Hate Crime post-referendum
  • Embedding effective structures in ensuring Britain remains open and inclusive
  • Community cohesion: Creating a deeper understanding of one another and celebrating differences
  • What can Local Authorities and Community Services do to prevent Hate Crime?
  • How forces will implement hate crime recommendations by HMICFRS and the ability to achieve these with competing demands
  • Understanding how to successfully change the national mindset
  • Training ambassadors and equipping with the right skills to intervene in the case of abuse
Complementing this day, our Supporting Victims of Hate Crime briefing provides you with the latest research findings, best practice used by both police and charities, first hand victim experiences, and innovative ways to support them.
