In support of Challenge it, Report it, Stop it: The Government’s Plan to Tackle Hate Crime True Vision has been awarded a grant to help raise awareness of hate crime amongst victims.
The funds, from the Department for Communities and Local Government, will support the production of materials to allow local partnerships to address problems they encounter but will also be used to send messages directly to help victims to access services.
Superintendent Paul Giannasi, who manages True Vision said 'We are very grateful for this suport from Governemnt. True Vision was developed by ACPO to provide a central resource, to benefit all victims and to help them get a service locally. It has almost 10,000 visits each month and these funds will help to further spread that message'
We have already used some of the funds to target affected communities and to promote material that encourages victims to seek help from the police, using social media as well as traditional options."
