The CPS is committed to raising awareness of hate crime and increasing the confidence of victims and witnesses when they come to report it. In August 2017, to coincide with the launch of the revised public statements on hate crime, the CPS launched the week-long #HateCrimeMatters campaign with involvement from each CPS Area as well as a wide range of local and national community partner organisations. The social media campaign had over 7,000 contributors and the campaign website has had almost 6,000 views.

During National Hate Crime Awareness Week (NHCAW), the CPS is standing alongside its community partner organisations and published its Annual Hate Crime report on 17 October. This was accompanied by communications activity including both national and local engagement with the NHCAW campaign.
