star this property answer text <p>The Home Office has collected disability hate crime data from the police since 2011/12.</p><p>In 2011/12, the police recorded 1,748 disability hate crime offences, 1,911 in 2012/13, 2,006 in 2013/14 and 2,508 in 2014/15.</p><p>Further information on hate crime can be found in Hate Crimes, England and Wales,</p><p>2014/15, available here: https://www.gov.uk/government/statistics/hate-crime-england-and-wales-2014-to-2015</p><p>Data for 2015/16 are due to be published on 13 October 2016 and will be available here:</p><p>https://www.gov.uk/government/statistics/hate-crime-england-and-wales-2015-to-2016</p><p>As stated by the Office for National Statistics, action taken by police forces to improve their compliance with the National Crime Recording Standard has led to improved recording of crime, especially for violence against the person offences. Together with a greater awareness of disability hate crime, and improved willingness of victims to come forward, this is likely to be a factor in the increase in disability hate crimes recorded by the police.</p><p>This Government is committed to tackling hate crime. The UK has one of the strongest legislative frameworks in the world to tackle hate crime. We are working across Government with police, (including National Community Tensions Team), the Crown Prosecution Service and community partners to send out a clear message that hate crime will not be tolerated and we will vigorously pursue and prosecute those who commit these crimes.</p>

star this property answer text <p>The Government takes all forms of hate crime seriously. Crime that is motivated by hostility towards some fundamental part of a person’s identity is particularly corrosive and can have devastating consequences for victims and their families. We are committed to working with communities in order to keep them safe.</p><p>The number of recorded disability hate crimes rose by 44% between 2014/15 and 2015/16. There are a number of factors behind this rise, including increased reporting of disability hate crime and improved recording of such crimes by the police. We welcome these changes.</p><p>The new cross-Government Hate Crime Action Plan published on 26 July includes specific actions on disability hate crime. These include looking at current best practice in tackling disability hate crime and working with partner organisations and the police to promote safety for disabled people, making better use of third party reporting centres and raising awareness of hate crime among carers and families of disabled people to encourage reporting.</p>

The court outcomes for these offences can be found here:</p><p><a href="https://assets.publishing.service.gov.uk/government/uploads/system/uploads/attachment_data/file/802314/outcomes-by-offence-tool-2018.xlsx" target="_blank">https://assets.publishing.service.gov.uk/government/uploads/system/uploads/attachment_data/file/802314/outcomes-by-offence-tool-2018.xlsx</a></p><p>Filter by ‘Offence’ for offences starting with ‘racially or religiously aggravated…’ and select all that appear.</p><p> </p><p>As hate crime against individuals with learning disabilities is not specifically defined in legislation, we would not be able to distinguish whether or not a particular offence was related to a learning disability. For example, a relevant case could have the offence recorded simply as ‘common assault’. The level of detail required to answer this question may be held in court records, but to be able to identify these cases we would have to access and analyse individual court records which would be of disproportionate cost.</p>
