Hate Crime Awareness Summer Grant Scheme 2017

Manchester has a long history of communities standing together during difficult times and we want to ensure that we continue our work of celebrating diversity and community cohesion by holding events and activity’s over the next few weeks and months in your area. We want these events to raise awareness of hate crime and promote reporting but equally we are encouraging events that celebrate the diversity of communities within Manchester and show how these communities work together to make our city so great.

We have made some changes to the grant application process this year, hopefully to make the process easier for your organisation and to enable you to hold more Hate Crime events (full details of the process are in the Guidance Documents).  Also for the first time this year Macc are administering the Hate Crime grants.

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.
