‘TAKE ACTION ON HATE, and make a difference for us all’


‘TAKE ACTION ON HATE, and make a difference for us all’ is a film for Refugee-led Community Organisations (RCOs) working across the Tees Valley area. Made by the Regional Refugee Forum North East and launched as part of National Hate Crime Awareness week 14th to 21st October 2017, this film maps the actions an RCO can take if a member of their community becomes a victim of hate. It takes into account the distinct reasons which deter many asylum seekers and refugees from involving the police. Through interviews with Victim Care & Advice Service, Cleveland Police, Middlesbrough Council Community Safety Team, and the Police & Crime Commissioner for Cleveland, the film explores routes to securing emotional and practical support to help someone recover from the impact of hate, whilst also highlighting the value anonymous reporting can have for promoting safety for the whole community. The message is, if every RCO takes action on hate, they can make a difference for all. 

The film is made with support from the Police & Crime Commissioner for Cleveland.  © Regional Refugee Forum North East 2017.
