    HMICFRS Lead inspector Wendy Williams: "Hate crime is a heinous crime because it strikes at the heart of who you are."

    Following on from our Tackling Hate Crime conference, this half-day briefing focuses on the victim’s aftermath for victims. We will look at the best ways to ensure victims are fully supported and how to prevent re-victimisation.

    Although the profile of hate crime is being raised among the police forces and agencies, more focus is needed across all relevant sectors and organisations. Our collaborative briefing will bring together Police, local authorities and community groups to talk about how to build nationwide support for victims: helping you to help victims feel better supported.

    The morning will include keynote speeches, panel sessions and interactive breakouts, designed to engender an inclusive, lively atmosphere, in which you will have the opportunity to engage with expert speakers.

    This day is designed for you and all your colleagues involved with supporting victims of hate crime, from both public and private sectors. Don’t miss this timely opportunity to join a national event at this key time when external unique pressures are high.
