Aims/priorities: Hate incidents and Hate Crime divides communities, creates a culture of fear, makes people’s lives a misery and are a common occurrence every day that are under reported. Hatred, intimidation and abuse because of their belief, protected character or identity should not be tolerated by anyone and by Tackling Hate Together we can understand cultures and difference. Continued efforts by local groups and organisations are needed to raise awareness and challenge hate crime in our communities, helping to build confidence for victims by highlighting how and where hate crime incidents can be reported. Through TMBC Community Safety Partnership, grant funding is available annually to support community led projects across Tameside that raise awareness of hate crime and how to report it.
The main aims of these grants are to:
- Raise awareness of what a Hate Incident/Hate Crime is
- Increase reporting of Hate Crime Third Party Reporting Centres
- Sharing Cultures & Inter-Faith activities/Workshops
- Understanding Difference and Protected Characteristics
- LGBTQ+ Phobia Identity hate & discrimination
Organisations should engage local people beyond their existing membership networks and:-

- Delivering a longer-term project to help local people find out more about hate crime.
- Helping to change/challenge the behaviours, narratives and perceptions of Hate Crime
