The council and MET Police will be jointly running events throughout the week with community pop-ups across Ealing culminating with the final event on Friday.

Hate Crime Awareness Week highlights the work with partners to engage with and support victims of hate crime after an incident.

Hate crimes are targeted at a person because of hostility or prejudice towards that person's race, ethnic origin, nationality or national origins, religion, gender or gender identity, sexual orientation or disability. It can take many forms.

To support the events in Ealing, make sure you attend one of the following events:

  • Wednesday, 18 October - Gender and Hate Crime Awareness Stall outside Lido Centre Mattock Lane 2-4pm
  • Thursday, 19 October - Disability Hate Crime Awareness Stall in Ealing Broadway Shopping Centre 10-4pm
  • Friday, 20 October – Hate Crime Awareness Event – Ealing Town Hall 9.30-3.30pm.

Friday’s event is a series of speakers raising awareness of hate crime in line with the councils’ three aims:

  • Build Confidence within our communities
  • To encourage the reporting of all aspects of Hate Crime and to support the individuals and communities
  • To validate an accurate picture of Hate Crime in the London Bough of Ealing.

Councillor Ranjit Dheer, cabinet member for safety, culture and community services said:  "Hate Crime Awareness Week allows us to reflect with our partners on how we can continually improve the services and advice we offer to victims of hate crime. It also provides an invaluable opportunity to showcase the immense effort the community performs in stopping such unacceptable behaviour.”

"I look forward to seeing residents at our community pop-ups and at the events we are running throughout the week."

You can get support and report incidents of hate crime or harassment to the council's safer communities team on (020) 8825 5994 or the police.
