  • Framework for Action on Hate Crime

    The All Wales Hate Crime Research Project is pleased to support the development of Welsh Government's Framework for Action against Hate Crime to ensure that people across Wales can live their lives without fear or harassment.  The Framework is part of the Programme for Government and is an objective within the Welsh Government’s Strategic Equality Plan. The Framework is now open for consultation until 18th October. 

  • Welcome to the Project Website!

    The All Wales Hate Crime Research Project has been funded by the Big Lottery Research Programme for three years to study the nature and impact of hate crime in Wales.  The project is being led by Race Equality First in partnership with Cardiff University and the members of the Cardiff and the Vale of Glamorgan Equality and Human Rights Network. 

  • Data collection complete!

    We are pleased to announce that we have now completed data collection for the hate crime research.  We would like to express our thanks to everyone who has helped reach participants for the survey and interviews.  We couldn't have done it without you!  Our research team at Cardiff University will now start to analyse the data for the final report in 2013.

Conducting Research Working in Partnership Building Capacity Raising Awareness
Welcome to the project website!

The All Wales Hate Crime Research Project is a Big Lottery funded research partnership between Race Equality First, Cardiff University and Cardiff and the Vale of Glamorgan Equality and Human Rights Network.  This project has been funded for 3 years to study the nature and impact of hate crime in Wales. 

The Association of Chief Police Officers (ACPO) defines a hate crime as “any hate incident, which constitutes a criminal offence, which is perceived by the victim or any other person, as being motivated by prejudice or hate”.  

Hate crime devastates lives.  It targets individuals at the level of their personal identity and creates fear and distrust within communities, but reporting levels are amongst the lowest for all crimes and there is an evidence gap in Wales that presents a barrier to improving practice. 

This project aims to produce good quality, robust data that can be used to help organisations in Wales develop evidence-based policy and practice to combat hate crime and provide appropriate support for victims.  In order to achieve our aims we work in partnership with organisations across Wales. 

We hope you find our website useful and informative.  Please feel free to get in touch if you have any questions or would like more information.
