This week, National Hate Crime Awareness Week, is a time for communities to come together to tackle hate crime and incidents, so we’re holding an online learning session about hate crime for tenants and staff on Friday 15 October at midday.
What is hate crime?
A hate crime/incident can be any criminal or non-criminal act, which is perceived by the victim or any other person to be motivated by hostility or prejudice based on a person’s disability, race, religion, sexual orientation or gender identity or perceived disability, race, religion, sexual orientation or gender identity.
A hate crime/incident can also be an act such as graffiti, vandalism to a property, name calling, assault or online abuse.
Online learning session
Habinteg’s learning session will be delivered by Gary Woodward of ASB Action Net via Zoom.
Gary worked for Manchester City Council for 23 years. He has a background in housing management and was Head of the Council's Anti-Social Behaviour Action Team, which included managing hate crime and incidents.
The session will help tenants and staff better identify hate crime and give them the confidence to report such incidents.
