Safer Futures Communities Bulletin

Safer Communities Bulletin

Here is the June edition of the Safer Future Communities newsletter with updates and news of work, and relevant information over the last month in the Criminal Justice world.

Over the last month, the 4 main VCSE sub-groups of the network; Reducing Reoffending; Victims Alliance Services, Violence Against Women and Girls (VAWG), and Gangs & Serious Youth Violence, have each held meetings focusing on the Police and Crime priorities in their respective areas of interests.

The Deputy Mayor, Sophie Linden, had a consultation engagement meeting with the Gangs & Serious Youth Violence sub-group on the Mayor’s Knife Crime Strategy.

It is essential that the Voluntary, Community and Social Enterprise sector is actively involved in driving the pan-London criminal justice agenda, and be engaged in MOPAC’s work on the Police and Crime Plan over the next 4 years. If your organisation falls into any of these groups, but have not been involved in them, please contact Ade Fashade at LVSC to find out more.

LVSC have also had positive meetings with the MOPAC Hate Crime Online Hub, who are keen to work closely with the sector to ensure wider reach for the service, the Pan-London Restorative Justice network, and the MOPAC Evidence & Insight Team, to keep abreast of crime trends in London to help identify gaps in service provision in the community.

Pride in London release findings from LGBT Hate Crime Survey

Pride Hate Crime.png

New research exploring hate crimes in the UK show nearly half of LGBT+ Londoners claim to have been a victim of hate crime. Pride in London, which commissioned the research, launched a hate-crime awareness campaign today and revealed it was behind the anonymous ‘hate’ posters and taxi adverts that have been spotted across London since Monday. 

Other findings comparing the experiences of LGBT+ Londoners and UK adults show:

  • 68% of LGBT+ Londoners worry that they could be a victim of hate crime
  • 42% of LGBT+ Londoners have been a victim of hate crime in the last 12 months
  • 18% of UK adults believe that they have been a victim of hate crime
  • Only a third of UK adults that have experienced a hate crime reported it to the police and amongst LGBT+ Londoners this falls to around a fifth (21%)

Pride in London’s hate crime campaign, supported by the Metropolitan Police Service and the LGBT+ anti-violence charity Galop, also uses crime statistics and social media data powered by Brandwatch social intelligence to feature real life incidents for hate crime on more than 80 posters throughout the city; supplied by Jack Agency, the ECN digital network, and across the VeriFone Media Digital Taxi Top network displaying 50 different geo located messages.

NHCAW Fundraising Campaign 2017

NHCAW Fundraising Campaign 2017

Donate here: https://www.sponsorme.co.uk/markhealey/nhcaw2017.aspx

We are aiming to raise £5,000 for the 17-24-30 No To Hate Crime Campaign over the next few months as we work towards National Hate Crime Awareness Week #NHCAW 2017

The money raised will help fund our on-going anti-hate crime work;

  • Organising the April Acts of Remembrance #AAR
  • Organising National Hate Crime Awareness Week #NHCAW
  • #NHCAW HOPE Campaign

Background

17-24-30 was founded in March 2009 to mark the 10th anniversary of the London Nail Bomb attacks on Brixton, Brick Lane and Soho which killed three people and injured many more.

In the same year, the organisation organised the first London Vigil against Hate Crime for Ian Baynham – after he died following a homophobic attack in Trafalgar Square.

In 2010, 17-24-30 registered as a small charity with HMRC ref XT30898.

The London Vigils took place between 2009 to 2012, and then evolved into National Hate Crime Awareness Week #NHCAW

The #NHCAW week takes place between the second and third Saturday in October each year, it aims to raise public awareness of hate crime, remembering those lost and those who need our on-going support.

National Service of Hope and Remembrance for those affected by Hate Crime

Will take place on Sunday 15th October at St Paul’s Cathedral – free tickets are available via Eventbrite here.

During the service we will remember those killed and injured during the attacks on Westminster Bridge, Manchester Arena, London Bridge and the Finsbury Park Mosque.

Each year, a National Candle of Hope and Remembrance is lit by friends and relatives in memory of someone they have lost, the candle then remains within St Paul’s Cathedral for the duration of the week. Previously the candle has been lit for those killed in the Admiral Nail Bomb attack (Andrea Dykes, Nik Moore and John Light), Ian Baynham, Sophie Lancaster, Mohammed Saleem, the 49 people killed in the pulse Nightclub shootings and 20 disabled people murdered in their beds in a Japanese care home.

#NHCAW HOPE Campaign

Our #NHCAW HOPE Campaign aims to;

  • Hate crime awareness
  • Operations responses to hate crime
  • Prevention of hate crime
  • Empower communities to tackle hate crime

We generally use the three hash tags; #WeStandTogether #NoPlaceForHate #SafePlaceForAll as they sum up the objectives of our work – to encourage people to come together, to state that hate crime is not acceptable in our communities, and that we want our communities to be safe places for everyone.
