star this property answer text <p>The Ministry of Justice has published information regarding prosecutions and convictions but the only hate crime offences specifically defined in legislation are ‘racially or religiously aggravated’ offences. 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>

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>
