Hate Crime Awareness Week

National Hate Crime Week Saturday 12th to 18th October 2019

Hate crimes that take place in our borough are often not reported to the police or organisations that may be able to help.

We want to ensure that if residents experience hate incidents they have the confidence to  report and access the support they may need.

So what are you doing in our borough against Hate Crime week?

The Community Safety team alongside partners from Victim Support and the local Police will be holding a number of events across next week - so please look out for the media coverage. Cllr Hargreaves will be introducing the week via a short film clip which covers the Council’s zero tolerance on hate crime and Victim Support will also be highlighting how they supported one of our  residents who suffered hate in the work place.

If you would like to have any further information about the events or how we can support residents to report please contact:

Lorna Platt, Senior Community Safety Officer, on 0207 361 3059 or Lorna.platt@rbkc.gov.uk
