Hate crimes are crimes that are motivated by hostility on the grounds of race, religion, disability, sexual orientation and gender identity. Hate crimes target an intrinsic part of the victim’s identity and have no place in our society. Providing funding for projects which prevent hate crime is one of the actions included  in the UK government’s hate crime action plan.

About the Home Office fund

The aim of the fund is to work with affected communities to develop a range of pilot projects to tackle hate crime, by funding the development of innovative projects that support the delivery of the five key aims of the UK Government’s plan for tackling hate crime.

 The five key aims are:

 1.    Preventing hate crime

2.    Responding to hate crime in our communities

3.    Increasing the reporting of hate crime

4.    Improving support for the victims of hate crime

5.    Building our understanding of hate crime

 The fund allows organisations to bid for grant funding for programmes that help to deliver some of the objectives set out in the Hate Crime Action Plan. Applications for funding will close on 14 October 2016.

 The Home Office is seeking to fund projects at two levels of either £25,000 or £50,000.

 What are they looking for?

The Home Office are looking for motivated and creative community groups or consortia to develop innovative projects that help to tackle hate crime and issues associated with hate crime. Projects must involve stakeholders who are affected by, or are past or potential perpetrators of hate crime.
