Wirral Council are proud to support National Hate Crime Awareness Week, taking place from 8-16 October. At the start of the week, Cllr. Helen Cameron, Chair of the Tourism, Communities, Culture and Leisure Committee provides a statement of support to continue to make Wirral a Safe place for all.

“National Hate Crime Awareness Week provides an opportunity for us all to join together in confronting hatred and prejudice in all its forms.

In Wirral we have a strong and diverse community and the vast majority of people treat each other with dignity and respect. I would encourage those people to call out hate crime wherever they see it. Nobody deserves to be treated differently because of their race, religion, sexual orientation, disability or because they are transgender.

Hate crime has no place in our society. It is up to all of us to challenge the small minority in our communities who perpetrate it. Working with partners we will always stand up to it and we will always listen to and support victims of hate crimes.

I fully endorse the work that our council officers, police and other partners are carrying out throughout National Hate Crimes Awareness Week and the rest of the year.”

Cllr. Helen Cameron
