Hate Crime Awareness News
 
 

5th February 2018

manchester hate crime awareness week 2018

 

Manchester’s Hate Crime Awareness Week 2018 took place from 5th  - 11th  February 2018 and Manchester Student Homes have been working with partners to deliver an awareness campaign to students. MSH recently obtained funding from the Student Safety Group (SSG), a partnership forum that educates students about personal safety and household security. The funding will be used for interactive activities and promotional material for Manchester’s Hate Crime Awareness Week.Over the last two years MSH has worked on behalf of the Universities with its partners such as Greater Manchester Police and Manchester City Council to develop an effective Hate Crime Awareness campaign which is rolled out throughout the year.This additional funding means we can continue to raise awareness of what constitutes a Hate Crime, and how and where it can be reported. We will also promote services that support those affected by Hate Crime.

Throughout Hate Crime Awareness Week, Manchester Student Homes delivered projects both on and off campus. We hosted a number of interactive information stalls under the banner of “Equality Street, armed with freebies, including safety merchandise and Quality Street, we will ask students about their knowledge of Hate Crime and signpost them to relevant agencies who deal in these types of incidents. Over the past 2 years MSH have spoken to over 2,000 students about the significance of Hate Crime Awareness and we have no doubt that this coming week will see our engagement grow significantly.

Many of you will remember the terrible attack that shook our great city last year. Those who live, work, study and visit Manchester continue to celebrate our amazingly diverse and vibrant community. We will not tolerate any form of Hate Crime in our City and respond with unity  #WeStandTogether

As well as providing advice and guidance, we continue to gather information from students and staff to create an art installation to be revealed in October 2018 to coincide with the National Hate Crime Awareness Week. Manchester Student Homes are proud to be a Third Party Reporting Centre,if you or anyone you know has been affected by Hate Crime, please feel free to sign post them to us for advice and guidance.

hate crime awareness

 

Manchester Students Homes (MSH) leads the way in raising the profile of Hate Crime Awareness and works in partnership with Manchester City Council and Greater Manchester Police to deliver an ongoing campaign that raises awareness of Hate Crimes amongst the student population. Here in Manchester, we have two Hate Crime Awareness Weeks taking place in February and October, and we take action against six types of hate crime – race, religion, transgender identity, sexuality, disability and alternative subculture. We will simply not tolerate any kind of discrimination or prejudice on the streets of Greater Manchester. 
 
MSH is jointly funded by The University of Manchester and Manchester Metropolitan University and have had events at both universities which have allowed us to speak to hundreds of students raising the profile of Hate Crime Awareness. Armed with Quality Street and promotional freebies, the Community Cohesion Interns and Student Community Advisors have worked with the ResLife teams at both universities to quiz students about their knowledge of Hate Crime, and have sign-posted students to the relevant agencies who deal in these types of incidents’. Since the start of the ‘Equality Street’ campaign MSH have spoken to over 700 students about Hate Crime and in doing so we have offered support to students to enhance their student experience.
 
MSH is also carrying out academic research with the support from the Universities, where there have been organised focus groups that have offered analysis of students’ own awareness of how factors influence their perceptions of minority groups. The students’ findings will help inform the continuing success of these campaigns by providing essential insight of the student experience. 
 
Anyone can be a victim or impacted by Hate Crime, whether they are a student, staff or community member, and those who are victims of a Hate Crime should call the police on 101 or the independent charity Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111. Alternatively, report online or use the True Vision app, always call 999 in an emergency.
 
MSH is also a Hate Crime Third Party Reporting Centre and this means that all of our staff have received Hate Crime training from Greater Manchester Police. We would be happy to support any member of our community who has witnessed or been a victim of a Hate Crime. #WeStandTogether #NoPlaceForHate

12th February 2017

hate crime awareness week

 

Hate Crime Awareness Week ran from 6th – 12th February and Manchester Student Homes ran a host of stalls and events at The University of Manchester and Manchester Metropolitan University to educate students about Hate Crime and how to report it. Under the banner “Equality Street” the Community Cohesion Intern, Student Community Advisors and Residential Life team set out to see how much the students of Manchester knew about Hate Crime. 

Armed with Quality Street and promotional freebies, we were able to quiz students about their knowledge of Hate Crime and signpost students to relevant agencies who deal in these types of incidents’. Manchester Student Homes were able to educate and inform over 200 students about the significance of Hate Crime Awareness – and what to do if you find yourself in a situation where you might have to report a Hate Crime. 

Any crime that is committed based on an individual’s prejudices’ – whether this is race, religion, transgender identity, sexuality, disability or alternative subculture – is considered to be a Hate Crime and must be reported immediately. 

It was positive to see that the majority of those asked knew what a Hate Crime was. However, few knew that you are able to text 999 if you aren’t comfortable talking on the phone at that point in time. It is also possible to report Hate Crimes to Third Party Reporting Centres – such as Manchester Students Homes

Our staff have worked in partnership with Greater Manchester Police and attended specialised training to help victims of Hate Crime, and we would be happy to help and support anyone who has been affected by Hate Crime.

Manchester Student Homes are proud to have worked so extensively in Hate Crime Awareness Week and we are extremely grateful to have worked so well with partnership agencies in delivering a plethora of events

                                               - Cooper Healey, Manager of Manchester Student Homes

Anyone who is a victim of a Hate Crime should call the police on 101 or the independent charity Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111.

18th October 2016

hate crime awareness week

 

Hate Crime Awareness Week ran from the 10th – 16th October and it sought to promote awareness of what a Hate Crime is and how to report it. Manchester Student Homes has worked in partnership with Manchester City Council (MCC) and Greater Manchester Police (GMP) in order to deliver a targeted campaign designed to promote awareness of Hate Crime amongst the student population.

Manchester Student Homes held events at The University of Manchester and Manchester Metropolitan University on 11th and 12th October, respectively, and spoke with hundreds of students under the campaign of “Equality Street”. Once students answered questions concerning Hate Crime they were given sweets, wristbands and keychains. This also provided the perfect opportunity to signpost students to relevant agencies that will be able to help and advise those who have experienced a Hate Crime.

During this event, Manchester Student Homes were able to work with GMP and the Residential Life teams of each University in order to provide a cohesive and solid message to students and the behaviour that is expected from them. 

Manchester Student Homes is also carrying out academic research with the support from The University of Manchester and Manchester Metropolitan University, where we have organised focus groups that will offer analysis of students’ own perception of how factors influence their perceptions of minority groups on the issue of Hate Crime.

Here in Manchester, we take action against six types of hate crime – disability, race, religion or belief, sexual orientation, transgender identity, and alternative subculture. We will simply not tolerate any kind of discrimination or prejudice on the streets of Greater Manchester.

Individuals who have been the victim of a hate crime can now come to our office and speak to a member of staff to receive support and guidance. Details of the crime will then be reported to Greater Manchester Police (GMP). All Manchester Student Homes’ officers have undertaken training delivered by GMP about hate crimes and how to support anyone who has been affected by this.

We would like to make our accredited providers, students, stakeholders and community members aware of this new service and we actively encourage you to pass on this information to those who may wish to use this service in the future.

Cooper Healey, Manager of Manchester Student Homes advised: "We are delighted that MSH has been awarded the status of being a 3rd Party Reporting Centre. Student safety is a massive part of the work we do here at MSH and this is a service that can be extended to any person living or working in an off campus area such as students, landlords and long term residents.
