The Hate Crime project started on the 1 st December 2019 and is a 2 year project funded by Welsh Governments Hate Crime Minority Communities Grant scheme working in partnership with hate crime officers, South Wales Police and Dyfed.
The project will support ethnic minority groups, religious organisations and individuals across South and West Wales around hate crime, how to recognise it, report it and speak up for others who are victims of hate crime and will support the engagement of Community champions who will work as a local contact within their communities.
The hate Crime community support officer for South and West Wales covers Bridgend, Neath Port Talbot, Swansea, Carmarthenshire, Pembrokeshire, Ceredigion and parts of Powys County Boroughs.
The Community Support Officer will also work alongside a number of Primary Schools across the area delivering a workshop around Unity and hate crime with year 5 or year 6 pupils.
The post is working in partnership with Victim Support Cymru and Hate Crime Officers within South Wales Police and Dyfed Powys Police forces.
If you would like to be a point of contact for your organisation or group and support
individuals to raise any concerns regarding hate crime against themselves or
someone they know.
Please contact RCC and ask about our Hate Crime Community Champions scheme.
