National Hate Crime Awareness Week 10th-17th October 2015











Backstreet are thrilled to have worked alongside CACH – Chase Against Crimes of Hate – on this amazing project

National Hate Crime Awareness Week is 10th -17th October 2015

The purpose of the Hate Crime Awareness Week is to tackle Hate Crime issues by raising awareness of what Hate Crime is and how to respond to it, encourage  reporting, and promote local support services and resources. They want to encourage local authorities (Police, Council and others) to work in partnership with local groups and community organisations to host a series of Hate Crime Awareness Events throughout the UK and Abroad in the week leading up to the International Day of Hope and Remembrance for those affected by Hate Crime.

Hate Crime

A crime that the victim or any other person perceives to be motivated by hostility or prejudice towards any aspect of a person’s identity. Police forces in England, Wales and Northern Ireland annually monitor five strands of Hate Crime:


Gender Identity

Race, Ethnicity or Nationality

Religion, Faith or Belief

Sexual Orientation

If you are targeted because of any aspect of your identity these organisations are here to support you.
