The Home Office has allocated initial funding of £200,000 for this first year of the new national online hate crime hub. The police report that a caseload of around 1,500 incident reports per year, based on a previous pilot, gives an indication of the potential caseload for the new hub, although this figure will vary based on a number of factors including proactive activity by the police to reach out to communities.
