The Tackling Hate Crime and Building Cohesive Communities conference hosted by the Hate Crime Strategic Partnership Group will be on Monday 20th November.

Earlier this year, the Scottish Government published a new Hate Crime Strategy setting out our vision for a Scotland where everyone lives free from hatred and prejudice.

The strategy incorporates three stated aims:

  1. Victims of hate crime are treated with fairness, compassion and in a trauma informed manner in which their safety and recovery is a priority.
  2. The nature, characteristics and extent of hate crime in Scotland are more fully understood and effectively inform appropriate interventions and policy development.
  3. Communities are empowered, inclusive and safe, and the underlying causes of hate crime are challenged.

The Scottish Government will soon publish a Delivery Plan that will set out the activity we will collectively take forward over the next two years (2023- 2026) in support of these aims.

We have prioritised activity based on the views of people with lived experience of hate crime from whom we heard during the development of the Hate Crime Strategy.

We are incredibly grateful to everyone who has shared their experiences of hate crime and made suggestions for how we can collectively improve our efforts to tackle it.

The conference will provide a further opportunity for us to come together to explore how we can collectively take forward the activity identified within the Hate Crime Strategy Delivery Plan.
