Welsh Government want to find out your experiences of hate crime

Welsh Government want to find out people’s experiences of hate crime since they published their framework on hate crime in May 2014.

They want to gather evidence on how effectively hate crime and incidents are being tackled in Wales and whether the Framework is having a positive impact.  'Tackling Hate Crimes and Incidents: A Framework for Action' was published in May 2014 and is Welsh Government's strategy for tackling hate crimes and incidents and focuses on prevention, supporting victims and improving multi-agency response. They will publish an up-date to this delivery plan in May 2015. 

A toolkit has been produced to help people take part including:

  • Face to face survey (pages 13 - 22 of the toolkit)
  • easy read survey (pages 23 - 31)
  • young person's survey (pages 33 - 38)
  • a focus group exercise (pages 39 - 44)

Also you can get the main survey on-line: https://www.surveymonkey.com/s/XPBDLBF

On-line children and young person's survey: https://www.surveymonkey.com/s/X62V9NP

The group exercise focuses on:

  • Community safety;
  • Awareness of hate crimes and incidents;
  • Incidences themselves; and
  • The effectiveness of support to victims. 

Deadline for responses is 15 May.
