Alternative subculture

We will now consider violence against alternative subcultures as a hate crime strand. This will enable officers to give more support to victims of anti-punk or anti-goth crime. However, it won’t change the punishment for those convicted of such acts, because alternative subculture has not yet been recognised nationally as a hate crime strand.

These include:

  • Goths
  • Emos
  • Punks 
  • Metallers

The Sophie Lancaster Foundation

Following the horrific murder of Sophie Lancaster, her family wanted to ensure a lasting legacy to their beautiful, bright, creative daughter and so the Sophie Lancaster Foundation was established and it became a registered charity in 2009.
