HOPE not hate Charitable Trust
HOPE not hate exists to provide a positive antidote to the politics of hate. We combine first class research with community organising and grassroots actions to defeat hate groups and to build community resilience against extremism. Hate is often the consequence of a loss of hope and an articulation of despair, but given an alternative, especially one that understands and addresses their anger, most people will choose HOPE over hate. Our job is to expose and undermine groups that preach hate, intolerance and division whilst uniting communities around what they have in common. We aim to take a part in building a society that celebrates rather than scapegoats our differences. HOPE not hate Charitable Trust is the main vehicle for the development and execution of our community action & engagement plans, training and educational services. We seek 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. HOPE not hate Charitable Trust enables us to make direct interventions during and after challenging events. We also publish regular pamphlets, toolkits, informational literature and analysis about extremists and the politics of hate both in the UK and abroad. HOPE not hate Charitable Trust was founded in 1992.

Hello :)

On Sunday I'm running the Brighton marathon!! Yep I will be bringing together all the learning and experiences of my previous attempts at my rather unexpected hobby of long distance running into the 2017 Brighton Marathon!

This time there will be no running for 5 miles next to Kar-e-oke man, no being overtaken by a man carrying a toilet, no melting jelly beans over my ipod leaving Pink on repeat for 3 hours and I'm definitely not settling for finishing upright in daylight - I am now going to be...


I'm running for HOPE not hate, a fantastic organisation which fights against extremism nationally and locally. They have done loads of great work countering the radical right and bringing communities together.

Thanks very much for visiting my fundraising page, I really appreciate all your support and thank you for any donations.
