The Home Office collects and publishes data on the number of religious hate crimes recorded by the police in England and Wales by police force area.

Data on religious hate crimes by police force area can be found in the Home Office Hate Crime Open Data Tables, available here:

For religious hate crimes, the Home Office began collecting information on the perceived religion of the victim on a mandatory basis in April 2017. These data are due to be published in the next hate crime statistical bulletin in autumn 2018.

This Government is committed to tackling hate crime. The UK has a strong legislative framework to tackle hate crime. We are working across Government with police, (including National Community Tensions Team), the Crown Prosecution Service and community partners to send out a clear message that hate crime will not be tolerated and we will vigorously pursue and prosecute those who commit these crimes.
