Tackling Hate Together

Our North East team is working to support the Commission’s nationwide action to help foster good relations. This includes a focus on supporting regional stakeholders who are trying to tackle hate incidents in their local area.

As the starting point of this work the North East team carried out a survey to find out how the region’s police forces, CDRPs and local authorities are working in partnership to tackle disability, homophobic, racist, religious and transphobic hate incidents.

Tackling Hate Together summarises the key findings of the survey. The aims of this report include the following:

  • Provide an overview of current partnership activity by the police, CDRPs and local authorities to tackle hate incidents in local areas throughout the North East.
  • Identify promising practice, areas for improvement and potential interventions that could strengthen local partnership approaches to tackling hate incidents and ensure CDRPs are best placed to respond to the Government’s hate crime strategy in 2009. 
  • Inform and support the wider good relations work of the Equality and Human Rights Commission.
