Home Office - Hate Crime Community Project Fund

16 Sep 2016 - 09:52 by michelle.foster

Hate crimes are crimes that are motivated by hostility on the grounds of race (ethnicity, national origin) religion, disability, sexual orientation and gender identity.

Hate crimes also have an impact on communities that identify with the victim; this can leave many communities feeling alienated and living in fear.
