Over the last five years the Government has committed to funding a range of organisations tackling online extremism and hate crime.
This has included: over £450k to MOPAC for a London Hate Crime Hub through the Police Innovation Fund; £200k for the first year of the police National Online Hate Crime Hub which went live in January 2018; alongside £100k to the Police to support the TrueVision website for hate crime reporting. As part of the response to online extremism under the Counter Extremism Strategy, we have provided £272,419 in grant funding for Civil Society Organisations through the Building a Stronger Britain Together Programme.
There has also been funding to tackle broader issues than online extremism and hate which would have benefit for both issues. For example, over £1.8m funding to tackle online harassment through the Office for Students.
