No Hate Here
The No Hate Here initiative, originally developed by North Belfast Policing and Community Safety Partnership (PCSP), is supported by the Council's Good Relations department, Intercultural forum and funded by the Executive Office and the Ards and North Down PCSP. Its aim is to support the victims of Hate crime , work in partnership with groups addressing it, develop new initiatives and challenge attitudes. Businesses and community groups will be encouraged to act as safe places where vulnerable members of the community can go for support, presenting a no tolerance approach to hate crime in the borough.

While racially motivated crimes and incidents are targeted at specific communities, they affect everyone. If Ards and North Down is to prosper as a community, then it is essential that all residents feel they have an equal share in the community and that each person contributes and is equally valued.
Within our community we are committed to:
• challenging racism and racist practices.
• creating an atmosphere where racism is not tolerated.
• trying to make sure that anybody can feel safe whatever their nationality, ethnicity or skin colour.
