Nottingham

Nottingham Citizens is a non-partisan alliance of 37 civil society institutions comprised of trade unions, faith groups, charities, schools and universities, all working together to make Nottingham a better place to live.

We organise communities to act together for social justice and the common good, developing the leadership capacity of our members so they can hold our cities' decision-makers to account on the issues that matter to them.

At present, Nottingham Citizens is tackling mental health, issues affecting young people and fair work and wages.

If your institution is not yet in membership, we'd love to have a conversation with you. Involvement in a Citizens UK alliance is one of the best ways for you and your organisation to make a tangible difference in the city, whilst at the same time developing the leadership skills and capacity of your membership. To arrange a sit down with one of our organisers, contact: pete.rogers@nottinghamcitizens.org

Nottingham Citizens Hate crime study reveals surge in verbal and physical harassment

One of the largest studies ever conducted into hate crime has found more than a third of people in Nottingham surveyed have experienced hate crime (35%), an increase of 6% since the last citizen survey ‘No Place for Hate’ in 2013/14, with the majority happening in the city centre and public spaces.

As part of the report for Nottingham Citizens, part of community organising charity Citizens UK, the experiences of over 4,170 people in the city were collected, including frequency, causes and locations of hate crimes, building on five years of work to tackle hate crime in the city. The first part of the survey, published today, represents the experiences of 1202 people responding to a city survey. A second report on the experiences of 2968 school and college children is due to be published over the summer.

Most respondents in the city survey had not reported the crime to the police (79%). Of those who did, 58% were satisfied with the police response and 42% dissatisfied.
