Tackling LGBT Hate Crime

In one of the largest collarborative projects that the LGBT Sector had ever seen, the LGBT Hate Crime Partnership brought together a partnership of 35 Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual and Trans (LGBT) organisations from across England, Wales and Scotland. Delivered for the Equality and Human Rights Commission, the partnership wokred to increase the reporting of Homophobic, Biphobic and Transphobic Hate Crimes and incidents and to improve the support available to those targeted.

An independent evaluation of this project will soon be available.
The legacy of this project exists in form of The National LGBT Hate Crime Network, a network of 45+ LGBT groups all working the field of LGBT Hate Crime who meet regularly and work collaboratively towards a common goal.
