Stand as one with refugees

The Government is taking action to combat any hatred or intolerance towards any section of our society. It has published a new hate crime action plan, developed in partnership with communities and government departments. This action plan will increase the reporting of hate crimes, prevent hate crimes on transport and provide stronger support for victims.

On the issue of the refugee summits, it is expected that the Government is represented at a senior level. Making sure that the UK continues to be a welcoming and tolerant society for those fleeing persecution is of the upmost priority, as well as the Government's efforts in pledging £2.3 billion in aid in response to the humanitarian crisis in Syria, and relocating up to 20,000 refugees over the course of this Parliament.
