No place for hate in Westminster – National Hate Crime Awareness Week

Fri, 07/10/2016

There is no place for hate in Westminster and the council strongly believes no one should be a victim of a crime simply because of who they are or what they believe in.

In Westminster 90% of residents feel the city is a place where people from different backgrounds get on well together.

Cllr Nickie Aiken, Cabinet Member for Public Protection, Westminster City Council, said: “Westminster is at the heart of one of the most diverse cities in the world. We are incredibly proud of our diversity and consider it one of the city’s key strengths. But we know there are still important challenges we need to address to make sure Westminster remains a place where everyone feels they belong and are safe.”

Earlier this year, the council launched a #CommunityCohesion Commission to better understand what makes communities more cohesive and how the council can address the possible root causes of hate crime as well as other issues such as radicalisation.

We want to hear from you! What is your experience of community cohesion Westminster? What more could be done to make it a place where everyone feels they belong and are safe?
