Come Forward

The problem of hate crimes against LGBTI people is being more and more recognized by international organizations and by many governments in Europe, but international efforts to tackle this phenomenon have not yet been developed. In order to successfully combat it, an effective interagency response is needed to address both the underreporting of crimes and the provision of affordable victim support services.



  • To increase the number of special support centers that work directly with victims by building the capacity of civil society and official partners locally and nationally.
  • To improve the access to specialized support through capacity building of victim support service providers.
  • Sharing good practices, strengthening international and interagency partnerships.
  • To inform the society and empower the victims.


  • Survey on the low-rate of reporting of hate crimes against LGBTI victims, needs related to victim support and good practices
  • Establishment of a group of international trainors.
  • Exchange of good practices in Europe
  • Awareness raising campaign on the topic
  • Dissemination of results – international conference, information brochures
