Two decades of research, scholarship and activism have enhanced awareness of, and responses to, varied forms of targeted victimisation in the UK. Those working in and around the area of ‘hate’ are less divided along a theoretical (scholarship) or practical (activism) approach. This chapter reviews one area of collaborative engagement between criminal justice agents, community voluntary workers, public servants and lay citizens of lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender (LGB£T) communities in South Yorkshire. Historical criticisms about the treatment of LGB£T communities by the criminal justice system have impacted on new and inclusive working relationships under a shared aim of reducing hate crime. Taking this as a key consideration, the chapter demonstrates the necessity for knowledge exchange and transfer, particularly with regards to marginalised or less visible groups, or ‘minorities within minorities’.
