New Hate Crime Strategy for 2016

The 2016 - 2019 Hate Crime Strategy has been launched and is available to download.

Hate crime is a serious social issue that has a significant impact on its victims, families and the community. The strategy was developed on behalf of the Council and Manchester’s Community Safety Partnership and sets out our key priorities for tackling and responding to Hate Crime.

In order to develop an effective and relevant Strategy, we consulted as widely as possible with a variety of people. The first part of this consultation involved agencies, voluntary and community groups who fed back their views at an event held in May 2015. A summary of the feedback can be found here.

You also kindly gave us your views and feedback via an online questionnaire and by returning the paper copies in the post. The consultation has now closed, the results were analysed and fed in to the development of the new strategy. A full summary of all the consultation findings can be found here. 

Thank you for taking the time to get involved in the consultation, your views have been important in shaping a Hate Crime Strategy that is committed targeting hate crime an its causes.
