HOPE not hate structure

HOPE not hate seeks to challenge and defeat the politics of hate and extremism within local communities, building resilience against the politics of hate and fear, at a national and grassroots level. In order to maximise our contribution to the debate and comply with all UK legislation, HOPE not hate operates via two separate and distinct legal entities, through which we deliver a range of activities and services. 2014 marks HOPE not hate’s 10th birthday as a national campaign.

HOPE not hate Educational Ltd (HNH Ed) is our charitable wing, which is the main vehicle for the development and execution of our community action & engagement plans, training and educational services. HNH Ed seeks to equip local communities and groups to defeat hate at a grassroots level. We also seek to influence the national debate by providing briefings and training to public policy figures as well as statutory and non-statutory bodies. HNH Ed enables us to make direct interventions during and after challenging events. HNH Ed also publishes regular pamphlets, toolkits, informational literature and analysis about extremists and the politics of hate both in the UK and abroad. HNH Ed was founded in 1992.
