No Place for Hate

Posted 14.07.2021

While most crime types decreased significantly during Covid-19 lockdowns, this was not the case for hate crime, which remained consistent. Additionally, several trends have been identified such as Covid-related hate crime (specially targeting East and South East Asian communities), Black Lives Matter related hate crime, disability based hate crime (e.g. people being targeted who are exempt from wearing masks). We also know that hate crime continues to be hugely underreported and intelligence from communities suggests that a lot of the above described behaviour is not being reported. All of this has led to some of our communities feeling more vulnerable and anxious specially as life starts to open up.

A ‘Day of Action’ on hate crime is being organised in Nottingham as an opportunity for organisations to come together and share messages on reporting hate crime, in line with the Nottingham twin-tracked approach of #NottinghamTogether and #NoPlaceForHate.


  • To encourage reporting of hate crime as the City opens up again
  • To ensure victims of hate get support
  • To send out a message that the safety of all communities is important to us as we open up
  • To encourage people to be respectful of difference as we interact with each other more

Resources available

  • Flyers – how to report a hate crime and what to expect after reporting
