Hate crime is any incident which is perceived to be motivated by prejudice based on the victim's disability, race, religion, gender identity or sexual orientation. Nobody should have to live with the fear, anxiety and consequences of hate crime and I will keep working with organisations to raise its profile across all strands of diversity. People need to be aware of what hate crimes are, the impact they have, how to report them, and where to get the support that they need should they become a victim of hate crime.
Hate Crime Priority Plan
So that we can all understand more about what we are doing together and want to do together to deliver on our priority areas of work we have developed our 'Priority Plans'.
These plans will be refreshed and renewed and are work in progress but we will report on our delivery against these Priority Plans in public facing Community Outcomes Meetings.
We want to demonstrate the difference we are making in our communities but we also want to know what else we could be doing to keep people in West Yorkshire safe and feeling safe.
If you have a positive contribution to make to our Priority Plans please contact the office.
