Tackling and Preventing Hate Crime: Policy and Best Practice


It has been two years since the government launched the ‘Action Against Hate Crime’ plan. Changes are now underway to improve legislation and support frontline staff working to tackle hate crime in its many forms. Attend this briefing on the 22nd January to learn how the changes will impact you and what resources you will have available to combat hate crime.

You will hear about the latest policies being enacted by government. You will also learn about the latest best practice from across a range of frontline staff in all sectors, working together to promote cohesion, understanding and safety across the UK’s diverse communities. 

Key issues to be addressed:

  • The ‘Action Against Hate’ plan: two years on
  • preventing hate crime by challenging beliefs and attitudes
  • Engaging with vulnerable communities to enable a better response
  • Enhancing the processes for reporting and recording incidents
  • Improving support for victims through the criminal justice system
  • Examples of successful hate crime reduction strategies from across the country
  • The importance of data collection in the outcome of hate crime prosecutions—using data correctly

The event:

The morning session will focus on how policy has changed and what you can do in response to this to make sure your enforcement against hate crime is up to date.

The afternoon session will discuss best practice from across the country enabling you to develop more effective strategies in your area. 

Morning refreshments will be served upon arrival with a networking lunch to follow. Any special needs or dietary requirements should be notified to us upon booking.

The event is CPD certified, and a certificate is available confirming your attendance.
