Tackling Race and Faith Hate Crime Community of Practice

In 2019, the Belong Network was commissioned by eight of the delivery organisations funded under MHCLG’s (now DLUHC) Race, Faith and Hate Crime Programme to write an evaluation of their work. ‘Together, we can achieve unity’ explores the shared learning and best practice examples from nine organisations who all delivered projects focused on increasing social cohesion during the Covid-19 pandemic.

This Community of Practice (CoP) has developed out of the work done by Belong and its members in this area. It aims to bring together leaders in tackling race and faith hate crime to develop a collaborative network which will:

  • Act as a forum for collective learning and joint analysis of evidence.
  • Provide peer support and peer observation.
  • Share best practice, research and evidence of what works.
  • Contribute to key policy agendas and practice initiatives.
  • Develop resources and training which will support, and add value for, those operating in this area.
  • Develop a collective voice and advocate for the importance of this work.
