Greater Manchester Hate Crime Awareness Week takes place from the 1st to 7th February 2021.

This week provides an opportunity to educate and raise awareness of hate crime. It is also a time to encourage both victims and witnesses to report it if it happens to them or if they see it happening to someone else. It is also a great time to bring people together to celebrate our diversity and what makes us all great.

Here at Future Directions, members of our SPICE group are doing lots of work to tell people what hate crime is and how they can stay safe. We have received a grant from Manchester City Council to fund this project.

On Monday we attended an online launch event where Jenny and Daniel told everyone about who we are and what we are doing to help stop hate crime. We shared this video which you can watch here.

On Tuesday we are hosting an online hate crime awareness training session so we can tell other people about what hate crime is. We think that by being able to identify it – we can all help to end it.

On Wednesday our Friends for Life group are holding an ‘Art with a Heart’ online session where we’ll be getting creative and promoting love not hate. We will also develop a hate crime newsletter which we will send out in the next few weeks, so look out for this. We have also made videos about ‘What is Hate Crime?’ and ‘Reporting Hate Crime’ which you can view here.

SPICE have also been involved in developing a Safe Places Scheme in Rochdale and we think that this is a great time to tell everybody about this. Please contact Jenny Neville for more information by emailing

Together, we can help end hate crime and create a community where everyone is welcome, safe and free from harm.
