Details

This document sets out the government’s plan of actions to deal with hate crime until May 2020. It applies to England and Wales only.

It outlines actions the government will take to:

  • prevent and respond to hate crime
  • increase reporting of hate crime incidents
  • improve support for victims
  • build an understanding of hate crime

As part of the hate crime action plan, a £2.4 million funding scheme for places of worship has been launched. This will provide security measures and equipment for vulnerable places of worship that need increased protection.
