Protecting Places of Worship consultation

Protecting Places of Worship consultation

Deadline 10th May

In launching this consultation, the Home Office recognise the vulnerability that worshippers feel when attending their place of worship. Places of worship should be a place of comfort but leave people vulnerable to abuse and intolerance. 

They understand the need to adapt the way they respond to religious hate crime recognising that no 2 religions are the same and that historical, cultural and theological differences also shape attitudes and practices towards security. 

Following consultation with religious leaders, they have consistently heard that there is an important balance to strike between worshipping openly and without fear, and providing adequate security measures to protect worshippers.
