TACKLING HATE CRIME: Hallam has been awarded funding to address concerns of hate crime

Hallam has been awarded funding to address concerns of hate crime and harassment on campus

Sheffield Hallam is one of over 40 universities and colleges to be awarded grants totalling £1.8 million from the Higher Education Funding Council for England’s (HEFCE) Catalyst Fund.  The project at Hallam will enhance positive relationships between different groups across the University and Students’ Union. It forms the second phase of HEFCE’s Catalyst Fund, which previously awarded the University funding for its project to address concerns about sexual violence and harassment on campus. The second phase of funding has been issued in response to a report by the Universities UK Harassment Task Force, which explored the nature and scale of hate crime in higher education, and highlighted a need for institutions to respond more effectively. It has been covered in The Yorkshire Post and you can read more on our Media Centre
