The All Wales Hate Crime Research Project was a Big Lottery funded research partnership between Race Equality First and Cardiff University.
The Project represents the most comprehensive piece of hate crime research ever to be undertaken in Wales and the findings provide us with a wealth of information about the nature and impact of hate crime.
Progress has been made, but our findings make it clear that hate crime is still a daily reality for many people in Wales, devastating individual lives and creating fear and distrust in our communities. The prevention of hate crime is a long term goal that will only be achieved if organisations work together in partnership to meet this challenge.
We hope that the data from the research will be used to evidence the resourcing of hate crime services in Wales and to support the development of policy and good practice in this area. The report outlines 10 key recommendations for consideration by Welsh Government, Local Authorities, police and criminal justice agencies, social housing providers, statutory health, education and third sector organisations.
Race Equality First is grateful to Big Lottery for the funding which has enabled us to produce this research which will improve the quality of peoples' lives in Wales.
