Hate Crime

The topic of Hate Crime is of genuine concern to ARCC, we operate a local Hate crime Hotline and also we have been carrying out numerous consultations with local people.  77% of which said they or family or friends have been victim of hate incidents or crime.

From our conversations with people within the community we understand that there may be some concerns about the possibility or reality of hate crime increasing or directed at certain communities such as immigrants and older people post Brexit regardless of whether we leave or not. We asked 80 ARCC members people what could be done to tackle hate crime?


The responses fall into 6 categories: -


  1. More action or involvement with/by police

  2. More education around reporting/diverse

  3. communities/respect and values/restorative justice

  4. Self-action i.e. reporting, taking precaution, communication and respect others

  5. National level action, i.e. media bias, policy change, perpetrators brought to justices

  6. Community response to hate crime, i.e. neighbourhood watch, advocacy, safe 3rd party reporting, different communities and faiths coming together.

  7. Supporting victims i.e. rebuilding self-confidence, reporting mechanisms, social integration.


This evidence suggests that there is a lack of awareness of what hate crime is and what causes it.
