The Leicester Hate Crime Project is Britain’s most comprehensive study of hate crime victimisation.
Funded by the Economic and Social Research Council, the two-year project is exploring the experiences of victims of hate crime – people who have been victimised simply because of who they are. We want to hear from anyone who has suffered from hate crime, and this includes those who have been singled out because of their identity or because they were seen as especially vulnerable or somehow ‘different’ in the eyes of the person who targeted them.
Throughout the duration of the project we will be working closely with criminal justice agencies and other service providers so we can collectively challenge hate and prejudice in Leicester. We hope that you will join us in making sure that this project makes a real difference to understanding the experiences and needs of hate crime victims and providing them with the sort of help they need and deserve.
This website has been designed so that you can interact with the project on many different levels. Using the panel of tabs, you can find all the information you need about the project, the research team and how you can get involved in the study.
If you’d like to take part in the research then there will be the opportunity to fill out the online survey from January 2013 or have your say about the research.
