We are proud that Trafford remains the safest borough in Greater Manchester. However, nationally reports of hate crime on the rise.
Everyone has the right to feel safe and we all have a responsibility to stand together against hatred and discrimination. It is important for Trafford, as a community, to do its best to tackle hate crime.
A Hate Crime strategy and action plan has been developed with the Safer Trafford Partnership which includes three key objectives:
- Raise awareness of hate crime
- Improve and review engagement with Third Party Reporting Centres
- Build resilience within the Trafford community.
