star this property answer text <p>We condemn any attacks against people on the grounds of race, religion, sexual orientation, disability or transgender identity. Where a crime is motivated by race or religion it will be treated as a hate crime and the perpetrator will receive a higher sentence. The police now record religiously based hate crimes by faith. The figures for hate crime in 16/17 will be published in October.</p><p>The Government is committed to tackling hate crime and we have in place a comprehensive Hate Crime Action Plan to drive forward action against such crimes. The action plan includes additional funding for projects to tackle hate crime at local level and to protect places of worship from hate crime. A further £1M to protect places of worship and religiously based community centres that are vulnerable to attack was announced on 22 June.</p> more like this

star this property answer text <p>Female Genital Mutilation (FGM) is a crime and it is child abuse. We will not tolerate a practice that can cause extreme and lifelong physical and psychological suffering to women and girls. That is why our work to end this practice is an integral part of the cross-Government Violence Against Women and Girls (VAWG) Strategy, which is backed by increased funding of £100M.</p><p>We have significantly strengthened the law, including introducing a new offence of failing to protect a girl from FGM, lifelong anonymity for victims, and a mandatory reporting duty requiring specified professionals to report known cases in under 18s to the police. We have also introduced FGM Protection Orders to protect women and girls at the earliest opportunity. These are already being used to good effect - since their introduction in July 2015, over 100 orders have been made.</p><p> </p><p>Raising awareness amongst frontline professionals is essential. That is why in April 2016 we published multi-agency guidance on FGM, which is statutory for the first time, and have developed free e-learning which has been completed by over 100,000 individuals to date. The Home Office’s FGM Unit is carrying out awareness raising outreach across the UK. These tools are helping increase awareness, encourage good practice, and support training.</p><p> </p><p>Significant work is under way to improve the response from health and social care professionals. The Department of Health, in partnership with the NHS, is leading a £4m national FGM Prevention Programme, and as part of the Department for Education’s £200m Children’s Social Care Innovation Programme a range of projects have been funded. DfE have also invested £375,000 to raise awareness amongst school staff and pupils.</p>

star this property answer text <p>Tackling knife crime is a priority for the Government. Our Modern Crime Prevention Strategy published in March 2016 set out a range of measures to strengthen our response to knife crime. Our work to tackle knife crime is centred on four key strands – working with the police on operations and enforcement, work on legislative framework, work with retailers on responsible sales, and early intervention and prevention.</p><p> </p><p>We are taking firm action including encouraging police forces to undertake a series of coordinated national weeks of action to tackle knife crime under Operation Sceptre. The operation includes targeting habitual knife carriers, weapon sweeps, test purchases of knives from identified retailers, and the use of surrender bins. The Home Office hosted a national briefing event for police forces on Operation Sceptre on 14 June and a record twenty nine police forces are expected to be involved in the next week of action planned for mid July.</p><p> </p><p>Local authorities are responsible for assessing need for youth services and allocating funding. The Government is supporting local authorities and the youth sector by investing to help youth organisations demonstrate their impact. The Government is investing in the National Citizen Service, investing up to £80 million through the ‘# iwill’ social action campaign and ‘Youth Investment Funds’ to help young people develop skills, improve their wellbeing and contribute to their communities. The Government is also investing in the ‘Delivering Differently for Young People’ programme, which helped local authorities develop new models for delivering on their statutory duty to provide positive activities for young people.</p>

This carries a maximum life sentence. In addition, someone who has possession of acid or other corrosive substances with an intention to do harm, is likely to be considered to be in possession of an offensive weapon, which is a criminal offence.</p> more like this
