April Acts of Remembrance 20th Anniversary Consultation

Triangler Bench

The 17th, 24th and 30th April 2019 marks the 20th anniversaries of the three London nail bomb attacks on Brixton, Brick Lane and Soho.

Three people lost their lives in the Admiral Duncan bombing (Andrea Dykes, John Light and Nik Moore), and approximately one hundred and thirty people were injured in Brixton, Brick Lane and Soho – some left with life-changing injuries.

For the past nine years the small anti-hate crime charity 17-24-30 No To Hate Crime Campaign has organised and facilitated the annual April Acts of Remembrance. Two brief outreach events on the 17th April in Brixton, and the 24th April in Brick Lane, and a larger gathering on the 30th April in Soho.

We at 17-24-30 believe it is important to remember those lost, and to stand in solidarity with those who need on-going support.

We raise awareness of hate crime, encourage reporting and signpost advice and support services.

We are organising this short Google Form survey to invite those affected by these attacks to share their thoughts and experiences, to help shape what we do to mark the 20th anniversaries in 2019 and shape how we deliver the April Acts of Remembrance going forward.

NationalHCAW HOPE Campaign 2018

H.O.P.E. stands for hate crime awareness, operational responses to hate crime, preventing hate crime and empowering communities to respond to and tackle hate crime.

This year we are developing a series of social media graphics to promote H.O.P.E. in the lead up to National Hate Crime Awareness Week #NHCAW that takes place between the second to third Saturday in October each year.

We welcome others to develop their own artwork to take part in this campaign.

We aim to take people on a journey – hence the three hashtags we use #WeStandTogether (Green) aiming to bring people together, #NoPlaceForHate (Red) opposing hate crime in our communities, #SafePlaceForAll (Blue) representing blue skies ahead where we can live in peace and harmony with each other.


We want to signpost people to our national website www.nationalhcaw.uk

And promote the National Hate Crime Awareness Week Logo.

Hate Crime FOI Report 2017


Preliminary report on our national hate crime freedom of information research project.

London pilot project

During the summer of 2016 we conducted our first Freedom of Information enquiry to councils across London. We had responses from 28 of the 33 London Boroughs including the City of London.

  • 69% of boroughs stated they do not have separate action plans for responding to hate crimes.
  • 34% of boroughs stated they do not explicitly include hate crime in their community safety plans at all.
  • 79% of boroughs do not have designated hate crime prevention officers, or similar roles.
  • 28% of boroughs do not facilitate hate crime reporting, and 17% do not have any information about hate crime reporting on their websites.
  • 69% of boroughs do not facilitate direct hate crime advocacy to individual s affected by hate crime.
  • 6 boroughs do not redirect or refer people affected by hate crime to external advocates
  • 11 stated that they are engaging with community based and voluntary organisations through hate crime forums or similar events.

Following the success of this initial piece of research, in the summer of 2017 we submitted Freedom of Information requests to every council across the UK – asking them eight sets of questions about eight areas of their work relating to hate crime.

This included; hate crime policy, staffing, reporting, resources, advocacy, funding, working with communities and participation in NCHAW.

UK hate crime freedom of information report 2017

We had responses from 384 of 402 councils across the UK (a 95.5% response rate).

Stars come together to release a hard hitting single in support of raising Hate Crime Awareness

On Saturday 14th October 2017, Warwickshire County Council and key strategic partners released the single, Love Instead of Hate (Give it a Try) to kick off Hate Crime Awareness Week 2017.

Letitia George.jpg

This project has seen Warwickshire County Council team up with Coventry-based ‘The Voice’ star Letitia George and ‘Let It Shine’ star Jordan Charles to create a powerful music single, called Love Instead of Hate (Give it a Try), showing the true pain caused by hate crime

The single, which has been produced in Warwickshire by music producers Neil Williams and Chris Welch, aims to raise awareness of hate crimes and increase the public reporting of them through a new website (www.reporthatenow.com) after a recent study suggested 3 out of every 5 Hate Crimes are not reported to the police.

The song, Love Instead of Hate, was initially inspired by poetry written by Stephen Crowshaw, a Nuneaton and Bedworth Police officer. Stephen’s lyrics were shared with Rugby-based music producer Neil Williams who immediately volunteered his time and considerable expertise to produce the track. Neil was able to very quickly form a team to work on the music, which featured Stourbridge Producer Chris Welch, Singer Songwriter Jordan Charles and Singer Letitia George all who gave their time and expertise to the project for free.

A music video has also been produced by Warwickshire County Council to accompany the single and featuring the acting talents of Young People from Rugby School Avon Valley School and Performing Arts College. 

Cllr Izzi Seccombe, Leader of Warwickshire County Council, said: “Love Instead of Hate is a fantastic piece of music with an important and powerful message. We are so grateful to the amazing producers and artists who have given a considerable amount of time to making this single a reality.

“I hope that this song and the work going on throughout Hate Crime Awareness Week and beyond will raise awareness of Hate Crimes and encourage the reporting of such crimes to the police. Making sure Warwickshire Residents are safe and feel safe in the county is a key priority for us. Hatred and Hate Crime have no place in our communities and the fact that so many of these crimes go unreported is not a situation we can or should tolerate.

Producers Neil Williams and Chris Welch, said of working on the track: “This is an incredibly important message that can’t be overstated. Getting involved with the project was an easy decision to make and I hope this reaches as many people as possible. If it helps prevent just one person from suffering a hate crime then it has been a success. I’d like to thank the incredible team we have worked with in making this possible for all of their hard work and dedication

Singer Songwriter Jordan Charles who wrote the Track, said: “Our communities are suffering from a lack of empathy. It’s much quicker to judge, insult or persecute someone than it is to feel compassion for them. Hopefully the message of love and strength in our song will help to inspire more empathy during Hate Crime Awareness Week and beyond

Letitia George, The Voice vocalist featured on the single, said: “it was an absolute pleasure to work alongside some fantastic people on making this song. I really hope that ‘Love Instead of Hate’ raises plenty of awareness and can do some real good increasing the number of Hate Crimes getting reported during hate crime awareness week and beyond. Every little good contributes to the fight against hate crime.
