Could you spare a few hours of your time every three months?
Warwickshire Hate Crime Partnership is looking for volunteers to join our Hate Incident Partnership Panels (HIPP). We need your valuable input and insight to shape the way our hate crime services and campaigns are run.
Who can join?
Any member of the community is welcome to join their local group. There are two groups – one for the north of the county covering Nuneaton & Bedworth, Rugby and North Warwickshire and one for the south covering Warwick and Stratford districts. If you would like to join, all we ask is that you:
- Have an interest in hate crime
- Would like to share opinions and offer advice
- Have a good network within your community and have an understanding of their needs
What does the HIPP do?
The groups meet every 3 months and they:
- discuss local community tensions and national hate crime patterns
- review hate crimes and incidents reported in the last 3 months
- scrutinise hate crimes dealt with by the Police
- plan and provide advice on new campaigns
- help with promotional activities and raising awareness of hate crime in the community
Where are the meetings?
The meetings are held every 3 months and run from 6pm - 8pm. The venue of the meetings can change but are normally Nuneaton Town Hall (for the North HIPP) and Leamington Justice Centre (for the South HIPP).
If you would like to volunteer or need more information about the meetings and what would be involved, please contact Karen Thomas at Warwickshire County Council by email (click on link) or by phone on (T) 01926 412433
