Her Majesty’s Passport Office can therefore only issue passports indicating ‘male’ or ‘female’.</p><p>The Government is aware of an increasing number of people who identify as neither exclusively male nor female. We have committed to carrying out a call for evidence on the experiences of people who have a non-binary gender identity. The evidence gathered from this exercise will inform the Government’s next steps in this area.</p> more like this

Last week, we announced an uplift of funding for 2019/20 of the scheme to £1.6 million. This is double the amount awarded in 2018/19.

There are no specific allocations of funding per faith group, with decisions on funding being based on eligibility criteria and the recommendations of the multi-faith independent advisory panel (with security expertise).</p><p>We provide funding for the security of Jewish sites separately through the Jewish Community Protective Security (JCPS) Grant, which is delivered by the Community Security Trust.

star this property answer text <p>Police forces in England and Wales are required to send proscribed data to the Home Office under the Annual Data Requirement (ADR). Under the ADR, police forces are already required to provide data on sex and age of victim to the Home Office. Furthermore, information on the relationship between victim and suspect data are collected for violence against the person and sexual offences. There are plans to make reporting of repeat victimisation in domestic abuse offences mandatory in the next reporting year (i.e. from April 2018). Perpetrator data is not routinely collected by the Home Office but may be supplied to the Home Office if a suspect has been identified, but this is not mandatory. The Ministry of Justice are responsible for data on offenders.</p><p>The Office for National Statistics published experimental statistics on victims of violent offences in February 2017. This covers age, sex and victim-suspect relationship. The report is available here:</p><p><a href="https://www.ons.gov.uk/peoplepopulationandcommunity/crimeandjustice/compendium/focusonviolentcrimeandsexualoffences/yearendingmarch2016/experimentalstatisticsvictimsofpolicerecordedviolentandsexualoffences" target="_blank">https://www.ons.gov.uk/peoplepopulationandcommunity/crimeandjustice/compendium/focusonviolentcrimeandsexualoffences/yearendingmarch2016/experimentalstatisticsvictimsofpolicerecordedviolentandsexualoffences</a></p><p>The analysis in the report uses data for a subset of forces so may not be representative of all forces in England and Wales and data were not reconciled with forces and are therefore subject to revision. They can only provide details for crimes at the offence group level and cannot be applied to separate collections such as knife crime data published by The Home Office. The Home Office continue to work with police forces to ensure the consistency and comparability of the victim information they supply.</p>
