SARH at the forefront of fight against hate crimes
Stafford and Rural Homes has been elected to the executive committee of Chase Against Crimes of Hate (CACH) – a multi-agency partnership looking to put an end to all crimes of discrimination and prejudice in the county.
Kathryn Bradbury, Neighbourhood Services Manager, said: “SARH is keen to work alongside its partners to help make Stafford and the surrounding area as safe and secure a place to live as possible.”
Working together CACH members look to resolve incidences and raise awareness of discrimination and prejudice based on:
• Sexual orientation
• Religion or belief
• Gender or transgender
SARH has been involved with CACH since the transfer from Stafford Borough Council in 2006 as a forum member and as a third party reporting centre since 2009, this is where members of the public can come to SARH to report crimes of hate.
“To be elected to the executive committee of CACH means SARH will play a leading role in tackling hate crimes in Staffordshire and we are delighted to have the opportunity to play such an important role in tackling this issue,” added Kathryn Bradbury.
Other organisations involved in the partnership include Stafford Borough Council, Staffordshire University, HMP Drake Hall, Staffordshire Fire & Rescue and Staffordshire Police.
