Hate Crime Strategy for Secure Services, Lancashire Care NHS Foundation Trust
The Joint Hate Crime Strategy between Lancashire Care NHS Trust and Lancashire Constabulary mirrors the Governments’ 4 years action plan incorporating the five key elements. It covers reporting of incidents, processes for supporting victims, work-based trauma support, perpetrator support, developing intelligence and ongoing collaborative working with police. Tackling Hate Crime is a key priority within the Trust Recruitment and Retention plan and Safeguarding vision 2019-2022. The Trust have shared this strategy with other local NHS Trusts.

“I have been very impressed by the Hate Crime Strategy initiated within Guild Lodge, part of Lancashire Care Trust. Guild Lodge has chosen to tackle hate incidences head on, by reporting crimes, demonstrating that “Hate doesn’t belong here”, providing prompt support to victims and educating perpetrators to understand their behaviour and impact on victims. It is no wonder that this is being rolled out across the Trust and further afield.”
