Greater Manchester Hate Crime Plan

Closed 8 Dec 2019

Opened 16 Oct 2019


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. So, we are creating the Greater Manchester Hate Crime Plan to help prevent and tackle hate crime.

We have worked with many people and organisations involved in tackling hate crime to develop a set of priorities for the Greater Manchester Hate Crime Plan. Now, we want to know what you think so we can develop them further. We want to hear from everyone in Greater Manchester, regardless of whether you have experienced hate crime or not. 

If you’ve been a victim or witness of hate, we also 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. Please do not include any names or personal information in your responses.

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

What Happens Next

Thank you for giving feedback on the Greater Manchester Hate Crime Plan.

The survey has now closed, and we are currently analysing all the responses. They will be used to finalise the plan, and shape services we commission for victims of hate crime.
