Hate Crime Plan Refresh 2024

Closed 24 Mar 2024

Opened 2 Feb 2024


Greater Manchester is a place where everyone should feel safe to be themselves. No one should face violence, abuse or hatred just because of who they are, who they love, where they’re from, what they look like or what they believe. Hate incidents and hate crime will not be tolerated in Greater Manchester.

There is a lot of great work taking place to tackle hate crime in each area of Greater Manchester but we think we can be more effective if we work together. Which is why we developed our first Greater Manchester Hate Crime Plan in 2019 to prevent and tackle hate crime.

The current Plan looks at

  1. how we raise awareness
  2. improve support for victims
  3. increase the confidence to report
  4. how we can prevent hate crime from occurring

We are now refreshing this plan for 2024 onwards and want your input to shape the future priorities and focus.

Why your views matter

If you’ve been a victim or witness of hate, we want to hear about your experiences, whether you reported it or not. Sharing your experiences and suggestions will help us to get a better understanding of what is working and what can be improved.

Please do not use this survey to report a crime. If you wish to report a crime, in an emergency please call 999, and in other situations call 101.

If you’ve been a victim or witness of hate crime, you can find out how to report it, access support and more information on letsendhatecrime.com or call 0161 200 1950.
