Hate crime has no place in Manchester. Everyone has the right to feel safe and we all have a responsibility to stand against hatred and discrimination. This has always been important and even more so following the Manchester attack. Manchester Community Safety Partnership has funding available to tackle hate crime. This funding has been running for several years and paid for some fantastic events and projects. This is the first year that Macc will be involved in the administration of the programme.
Hate crime is heavily under-reported, more work needs to be done to highlight where and how reports can be made to challenge hate crime in our communities, and support victims to feel more confident to report hate crime incidents.
The aim of the funding is:
• to raise awareness of what hate crime is
• to increase reporting
• and to celebrate diversity in your communities
This year Manchester’s Community Safety partnership and Macc would like to increase the number of applications received. We welcome applications from those who have applied previously and any group or project who hasn’t applied in the past.
The deadline for applications is 12noon on Friday 14 July 2017.
