unstar this property answer text <p>This Government abhors all forms of hate crime, including hate crimes motivated by a victim’s actual or perceived sexuality or disability. That is why we are taking a cross-Government approach to tackling the issues through the Hate Crime Action Plan published in July 2016.</p><p>The Government will continue to deliver against the commitments under the action plan which includes recently announced funding for seven new community-led projects, three of which focus specifically on tackling disability hate crime and one which focuses specifically on LGBT hate crime. The Home Secretary has also recently announced funding for the creation of a national online hate crime hub, improving the response to all forms of hate crime.</p> more like this
