Taking Action against Hate Crime: Preventing Hate Crime, Prosecuting Perpetrators and Supporting Victims

Despite positive steps, significant progress is still required to prevent and respond to hate crime and improve support for victims. Hate crime victims are more likely to suffer repeat victimisation and, consequently, serious psychological impacts (Home Office, Action Against Hate, 2016). According to the CPS Victim and Witness Satisfaction Survey (2015) victims of hate crime were less likely to be satisfied with the final charges, and referred to victim support, than the overall average.

This timely symposium offers an invaluable opportunity for local authorities, the police, legal professionals and third sector practitioners, to analyse the increase in hate crime and strengthen working partnerships to ensure that hate crime in all forms is tackled effectively in every local community. It will also provide all relevant stakeholders with a platform to discuss ways of overcoming challenges and ensuring Britain remains a place of tolerance and inclusivity.
