Please find attached the research report derived from a study undertaken by SAREC, the Scottish Alliance of Regional Equality Councils through its constituent members, CSREC, ELREC, GREC and WSREC. The research was initiated, with funding from Big Lottery, due to SAREC’s concern about the increasing levels of hate crime across Scotland and about the ways in which those who have experienced hate behaviour are supported, both following an incident and in any subsequent investigation.

We hope you will find this useful.

Kind regards

Mohammed Razaq

Executive Director
