The Government Equalities Office has not met hate crime prevention groups specifically, but meets regularly with stakeholders – such as Stonewall, the End Violence Against Women Coalition, and the Lesbian and Gay Foundation – to discuss a broad range of issues including hate crime. In addition, Government Equalities Office officials attend the Hate Crime Strategy Board, a cross-Government working group led by the Home Office and Ministry of Justice which considers policy and service improvements to prevent and reduce all forms of hate crime, and improve the criminal justice system’s response to such incidents.
