No Place for Hate Campaign & Pledge

Our well regarded No Place for Hate Campaign aims to make Tower Hamlets a safe place for those who live, work or visit the borough. The campaign sends clear and consistent message

that Hate Crime will not be tolerated by the council, the Mayor or Metropolitan Police. Support is available and Enforcement action will be taken where possible.

Our NPFH Pledge Project strengthens our NPFH campaign  by encouraging  bystander action and proactivity in challenging hate. The NPFH Pledge Project incorporates a personal and organisational pledge for individuals to sign.  It aims to strengthen the NPFH Campaign through promoting a stronger partnership by encouraging local organisations, businesses, faith organisations, leisure centres, libraries, community centres, youth centres etc, to take responsibility to publicly condemn and challenge attitudes and behaviour that collude, support or promote hatred.

To join our campaign to make tower hamlets a no place for hate please sign our No Place for Hate Pledge from our website on  www.towerhamlets.gov.uk/hatecrime.

Please encourage your staff, service users & visitors to do so online or by signing a copy of the hard copy attached.

 

No Place for Hate Champions Project

The Hate Crime Champions Project is an extension of our NPFH campaign. Launched in 2007 it has been increasing the capacity and skills available in the local community to deal with hate crime in the borough by empowering local people to play their part in promoting community cohesion by raising awareness on hate crime and increasing the local community’s confidence to report hate crime and ensuring the No Place for Hate and One Tower Hamlets messages are far reaching. Our trained champions reflect the diverse community that we serve and we have champions from marginalized and hard to reach groups (LGBT, Disabled, Muslim Women, Youths, Refugee & Newcomers etc). The Champions have collectively reached out to thousands of people through training, events and workshops, targeting hard to reach communities such as, refugees and newcomer communities, young people, the elderly, and LGBT & Disability communities, amongst many others. Our Champions undergo a 4 day free training programme. We will shortly be recruiting our seventh cohort of Champions.

Our service is open 9.00 am to 5.00pm Mondays to Fridays.
