The framework aims to tackle hate crimes and incidents in respect of the protected characteristics under the Equality Act 2010. 

These include:

  • disability
  • race
  • religion
  • sexual orientation
  • gender identity
  • age.

The framework has also been developed to tackle areas of hate crimes and incidents across cyber hate and bullying, far right hate and mate crime (befriending of people, who are perceived by perpetrators to be vulnerable, for the purposes of taking advantage of, exploiting and/or abusing them).

The framework includes 3 objectives on prevention, supporting victims and improving the multi-agency response.

The framework has been developed using evidence from the All Wales Hate Crime Research Project by Cardiff University and Race Equality First. The research can be found on the Race Equality First website (external link).
