She said: “This is a great opportunity for someone with passion and insight to join the board, shining a light on the issues and help build relationships with communities. Hate crime is an insidious crime that can have a corrosive effect on our communities and lasting, life-long impacts on victims.”

Amie added: “The partnership board has a strong focus on raising awareness of hate crime, what it is and how to report it, and is keen to spread knowledge across our communities. This isn’t just a police issue, of course, it’s much wider than that, which is why it is right that an independent voice takes the lead.”

The meetings discuss hate crime awareness, criminals proceedings and community engagement.

The role is voluntary but will be expenses paid.

People who are interested are asked send their suitability of the position - a maximum 500 words, to County Community Safety Unit Programme Manager Kate Moore, by May 27.
