Hate Crime following Brexit fallout

In response to public demand – a motion was agreed by councillors present at the July Full Council 2016. We condemn any form of racism, xenophobia, hate crime and any form of discrimination. We value our European and overseas residents – Liberal Democrats’ Bob Smytherman and Hazel Thorpe have also put forward a practical solution to the issue. We have asked for a review of support already in place, signposting and future help and advice of where to go and whom to ask to improve our communication with our communities. We want our Council to be a listening, proactive body responding positively to you – the public.The Government now has a Hate Crime action plan, and we intend to get it factored in our local plan across Worthing and Adur.
