Stop Hate in Norfolk (SHiN) was launched in 2017. In that time lots of work has been led by Norfolk Constabulary and Norfolk County Council, in partnership with relevant organisations to embed the principles of SHiN. Work has included a focus on increasing the confidence of people across the county to report hate incidents as well as increasing the number of places where people can report.
A dedicated SHiN webpage has been set up and a free hate incident e-learning package will shortly be made available to organisations and members of the public to ensure everyone has the information they need. A programme of face-to-face training has also been carried out by Norfolk County Council and the Constabulary, reaching over 200 people from a range of private, voluntary and public sector organisations. This training gives organisations the tools and knowledge to help people to report hate incidents if they lack the confidence to do it themselves. A series of posters and window stickers have been developed to make organisations who can offer this support easy to identify.
A year on, we want to build upon what is already in place and raise even more awareness of SHiN and hate incidents in general and the damaging effect it can have on people and communities. In order to do this we want more organisations to adopt SHiN.
The Stop Hate in Norfolk Protocol aims to create a common standard for tackling hate crime/incidents across Norfolk.
It sets out how different organisations in Norfolk – whether public, private, voluntary or community – will work together, to make it easier for residents to report hate incidents and crime.
Any organisation in Norfolk can adopt the Protocol. Click here for the Protocol.
