17-24-30 National Hate Crime Awareness Week is now registered as a Charitable Incorporated Organisation with the Charity Commission, charity number 1184819.
The charity started life as a Facebook group in March 2009 with the objective of providing an online space for those affected by the three nail bomb attacks on Brixton, Brick Lane and Soho to stay in touch.
Following the 10th anniversaries of these attacks the organisation took on responsibility for organising the April Acts of Remembrance that take place on the 17th, 24th and 30th April each year. Hence the first part of our organisations name; 17-24-30.
In October 2009 we organised the first London Vigil against Hate Crime which saw over 10,000 people gather in Trafalgar Square London to say No to Hate Crime. We became known as the 17-24-30 No To Hate Crime Campaign.
We then registered as a small charity with HMRC Reference XT30898.
We organised the London vigils between 2009 to 2012. They then evolved into what we now know as National Hate Crime Awareness Week which takes place between the second to third Saturday in October across the UK each year. Hence the second part of our new name; National Hate Crime Awareness Week.
In January 2019 we adopted our new name; 17-24-30 National Hate Crime Awareness Week, otherwise referred to with the working names as 17-24-30, 17-24-30 NationalHCAW, or 17-24-30 No To Hate Crime Campaign.
We were finally registered with the charity commission on the 8th August 2019.
