Event Description

We know hate crime is on the rise - join us and help make it clear there is NO PLACE FOR HATE in the UK.

We want to raise funds to secure the future of National Hate Crime Awareness Week and keep bringing people together across the UK to say NO TO HATE CRIMEencourage hate crime reporting, whilst we strive to make our communities safer for everyone to live in peace and harmony with each other. 

That is why we use the hash tags #WeStandTogether #NoPlaceForHate and #SafePlaceForAll.

National Hate Crime Awareness Week aims to encourage local authorities (police and councils), key partners and communities affected by hate crime to work together to tackle local hate crime issues.

We coordinate the national week. We raise funds to create resources that we distribute to groups so that they can raise awareness of hate crime and signpost local advice and support services

Reported hate crime has gone up 17% in the last year, it has risen 123% since 2012.

We know that there are people who have been affected by hate crime who are suffering alone and we want to make sure they know the whole of the country stands in solidarity with them. 

So far our project had helped get over 211 councils involved and we need your help to get the rest on-board. 

NationalHCAW is about uniting communities and sharing a message of #HOPE across the UK. 

H.O.P.E. stands for raising Hate crime awareness, improving Operational responses to hate crime, Preventing hate crime and Empowering communities affected by hate crime.

NationalHCAW takes place between the second and third Saturday in October each year. This year the week takes place between the 12th - 19th October.

The week condemns all forms of hate and prejudice targeted against people on the basis of them being a member or perceived to be a member of alternative subcultures, having a disability, because of their faithgender identityrace or sexual orientation.

The week evolved out of a movement to prevent hate crime, inspired by the London Vigils against Hate Crime held between 2009 to 2012, after the death of Ian Baynham.

Our ambition is to get every council around the UK involved in the national week - which is why we need your help.

We want to raise funds to enable us to;

  • deliver the National Hate Crime Awareness Week 2019 encouraging thousands of hate crime awareness events to take place around the UK.
  • cover the costs of the Service of Hope and Remembrance at St Paul's Cathedralpaying for two BSL interpreters, contribution towards the choir, poet and travel expenses for guest lighting the national candle. Register here if you would like to join us;
  • design, produce and distribute hate crime resourcesto groups and organisations taking part in England, Northern Ireland, Scotland and Wales.
  • organise a national conferenceearly in the new year to bring hate crime experts together.
  • promote our annual H.O.P.E campaignraisingHate crime awareness,  improvingOperational responses to hate crime,Prevent hate crime andEmpowering communities to tackle hate crime.
  • employ a part-time member of staffto work one day a week to organise and support our team of volunteers.
  • cover basic volunteer expensesso that our volunteers are not left out of pocket whilst volunteering.

This year I am aiming to raised £500 for 17-24-30 so that the charity can continue it's vital work delivering this important week.

£25 to get this fundraiser going - good luck Mark, your work is helping to unite people around the UK to stand up and do something about hate crime. I consider is a good deed when your actions help one person. Your actions are helping hundreds if not thousands of people affected by hate crime find the advice and support they need. Which is just awesome - keep up the good work.
