Trafford Housing Trust’s Social Investment Board, Trafford Council and the Greater Manchester Combined Authority are making £20,000 available for projects to tackle hate crime in the borough.

In its seventh year, Greater Manchester’s Hate Crime Awareness Week runs from 4 to 10 February 2019. Grants of up to £500 are available to support events and £2000 for projects which prevent hate crime by bringing communities together, strengthen community cohesion, encourage the reporting of hate crime, provide support to victims and reduce the impact of hate crime on communities.

Trafford Housing Trust’s Acting Chief Executive, Larry Gold, said: “In Trafford, we celebrate our strong, diverse communities, recognising the many faiths and cultures across our borough, and we are proud that Trafford remains the safest borough in Greater Manchester”.

Nationally there has been a rise in hate crime, e.g. verbal abuse, harassment, physical attacks, damage to property, etc. committed against any person or group that is motivated by hostility and prejudice based upon disability, race, ethnic origin or nationality, religion, sexual orientation, gender orientation or alternative subculture.
