14th - 21st October 2023
A week of solidarity with those affected by hate crime.
A huge thank you to everyone who has take part in the national week this year, looking forward to working with you over the year ahead to make sure there is NO PLACE FOR HATE IN THE UK #SafePlaceForAll
17-24-30 was initially founded as a Facebook group in March 2009 by Mark Healey and Ryan Parkins to mark the 10th anniversary of the London Nail Bomb attacks on Brixton, Brick Lane, and Soho.
17-24-30 takes the first part of its name from the dates of the three attacks: the 17th of April 24th April and 30th April.
In October 2009, we organised the first London Vigil Against Hate Crime after the death of Ian Baynham, which inspired anti-hate crime vigils across the UK.
We organised the London Vigils Against Hate Crime between 2009 to 2012.
In 2010 17-24-30 evolved into a small charity called 17-24-30 No to Hate Crime Campaign registered with Her Majesty's Revenue and Customs. HMRC Ref: XT30898
Since 2010 we have organised the annual April Acts of Remembrance. Two smaller outreach events in Brixton and Brick Lane on the 17th and 24th April, and a larger gathering in Soho on the 30th of April.
In October 2012, the annual Vigils Against Hate Crime evolved into National Hate Crime Awareness Week, a week of action to encourage the authorities (Government, Police and Councils), key partners (business and voluntary sectors) and communities affected by hate crime to work together to tackle hate crime across the UK.
In January 2019 we formally changed our name to 17-24-30 National Hate Crime Awareness Week also referred to as 17-24-30 or 17-24-30 NationalHCAW.
In August 2019 we were registered as a Charitable Incorporated Organisation with the Charity Commission. Charity No 1184819
17-24-30 National Hate Crime Awareness Week exists to:
We facilitate our UK Hate Crime Network group on LinkedIn for hate crime professionals across the UK Hate Crime Sector, share news and social media across our charity's social media profiles, and facilitate three national meetings to bring the UK Hate Crime Sector together.

We welcome your feedback.
In the first instance we encourage people to report to the Police however if you don't want to speak to your local police then you can try your local council (some but not all provide hate crime reporting guidance on their websites), or you can report an incident to an independent third-party organisation.
You can report hate crime directly to your local police or via True Vision. Dial 999 if it is an emergency and you need immediate assistance. Call the police on 101 when it is not an emergency.
Check out the national Google Map we have created which provides links to every council website in the UK. We have ticked in green those that provide hate crime information on their websites and crossed in red those that don't.
Our hope is that every council around the UK will eventually provide basic hate crime information and advice on their websites.
Third Party Organisations
There are independent specialist hate crime organisations that you can contact for advice and support. We have provided links to some of them on our website.
We have set up a Linktree profile ReportHate with links to hate crime reporting sites across the UK.

The week of action takes place between the second to third Saturday in October each year.
It aims to bring people together to stand in solidarity with those affected by hate crime, to remember those we have lost, and support those who need ongoing support.
We run an annual campaign promoting H.O.P.E.

Frequently Asked Questions
In September 2009, Ian Baynham was homophobically abused and beaten unconscious in Trafalgar Square. After two weeks in a coma, he died from the injuries he sustained. His death inspired the first London Vigil Against Hate Crime which was held on the 30th of October 2009.
It was one of the first events of its kind to go viral across social media, over 29,000 people shared the event on Facebook and over 10,000 people attended the first vigil in Trafalgar Square.
The London Vigils took place between 2009 to 2012, whilst other vigils took place in Brighton, Kettering, Milton Keynes, and Norwich, amongst others around the UK.
In 2012 the London Vigils and vigils across the UK evolved into National Hate Crime Awareness Week #NationalHCAW and we began holding the annual Act of Hope and Remembrance for those affected by Hate Crime at St Paul's Cathedral.
We created a tradition of lighting a National Candle of Hope and Remembrance for those affected by Hate Crime that remains lit in St Paul's Cathedral for the duration of the national week.
In 2012 the first candle was lit in memory of Nick Moore (victim of Homophobic hate crime) by his mother Peggy and sister Carolyn.
In the following years the national candle has been lit for:
As the national week has evolved, we have worked in partnership with anti-hate crime organisations across the UK.
Each year our volunteers.

National Hate Crime Awareness Weeks
London Vigils Against Hate Crime
Each year we organise the April Acts of Remembrance to mark the anniversaries of the London Nail Bomb Attacks on Brixton, Brick Lane, and Soho.
On the 17th of April and 24th April, we organise two small acts of remembrance in Brixton and Brick Lane. The schedule for these events is as follows:
On the 30th of April we organise a larger gathering in Soho.
We gather to remember those we have lost, those who need our ongoing support and educate the next generation in the hope that we can prevent further attacks on our communities.
In this section:
17-24-30 National Hate Crime Awareness Week (1184819) was born out of the reaction to the horrendous London nail bomb attacks targeted towards the Black, Asian and Gay communities of London in April 1999, and the horrific homophobic assault on Ian Baynham in Trafalgar Square in September 2009. Ian's death inspired his community, the inclusive LGBTQIA+ community to rally together across the world with our allies to stand together to say that there is no place for any form of hate and prejudice in our communities. We want to make the world a safer place for everyone!
Our Rainbow Boroughs Project aims to enhance networking, communication, collaboration & signposting across the inclusive LGBTQIA+ community.
Your generous donations will help ensure we can continue our anti-hate crime work.
