Glyndwr University awarded Hate Crime Charter Trustmark

News and Info from Deeside, Flintshire, North Wales

Wrexham Glyndwr University have been recognised for its continued commitment to supporting and promoting the rights of victims and communities when incidents of hate crimes take place.

Last year the University signed up to the Victim Support Hate Crime Charter and have now been awarded the Hate Crime Charter Trustmark for demonstrating it is delivering on its pledge.

The charter sets out in detail the rights of victims, and the commitments of organisations in playing a part in tackling hate crime, providing support and information for victims, and to raise awareness of hate crime among staff and the communities the University works with.

Organisations that adopt the charter are committing to ensuring that staff are expected to abide by the charter’s promises whenever they come into contact with those affected by hate crime and work to build strong and inclusive communities.

Pete Gibbs, Executive Director of HR confirmed that “The University were one of the first organisations in North Wales to sign the charter in 2020 and we are very proud that after signing up to the charter we have earned the Trustmark by demonstrating our commitment to it.  

“Whilst the number of hate crimes in Wrexham may be small in comparison to other towns any incident of hate crime here is too many and as an Institution we continue to fully support Victim Support’s Hate Crime Charter.” 

Hate Crimes are crimes perceived by the victim or other people to be motivated by prejudice or hate, whether it’s because of age, disability, sexual orientation, religion, ethnicity, or gender identity.
