- National Hate Crime Week
National Hate Crime Awareness Week 2016 ran from 8 – 15 October 2016 and was an opportunity for people to raise awareness of what hate crime is and how we can respond to it when we witness or are victim to it. This can help to ensure people report instances of hate crime, victims get the support they need and those committing it are met with justice.
WREP has supported a range of activities which took place during the week.
