Step Up Beat Hate Campaign
A joint hate crime initiative with Derbyshire County Council, Derby City Council, Remedi and the OPCC for Derbyshire.
The Step Up Beat Hate campaign is a joint-agency pilot, led by Derbyshire Victims Services' provider Remedi and the Restorative Justice Council (RJC).
The aim of the campaign is to increase awareness of the benefits of restorative justice (RJ) among past and current victims of hate crime. Its goals are to improve support to victims of hate crime across the county and encourage more survivors to report their experiences to police.
The £27,000 project has been part-funded by the Home Office's Hate Crime Community Project Fund (£12,000) with the commissioner, city and county councils contributing a further £5,000 each. These organisations are critical to the work to tackle hate crime in the city and the county and they decided to augment the budget in order to deliver an awareness campaign to ensure that victims of hate crime know how to access support services of any kind.
These services are available whether the incident is reported to the police or not.
