About Prejudice Free Dorset
Who are we?
Prejudice Free Dorset (PFD) is a partnership group made up of local agencies that seeks to promote inclusive communities across Dorset. The group works together to challenge prejudice in Dorset so that all individuals can go about their daily lives safely and with confidence.
Our message is clear: hate crime will never be tolerated and victims of prejudice will always be supported.

How can we help?
By working together, Prejudice Free Dorset aims to provide information and education to the public and other organisations, on hate crime and hate incidents.
We are working to build the confidence of all communities to come forward and report hate incidents and crimes. We are here to provide support and advice where it’s needed.
We work together to challenge prejudice in Dorset so that all individuals can go about their daily lives safely and with confidence.

Superintendent Gavin Dudfield, Chair
In his full-time role, Gavin is the Neighbourhood Policing and Partnership Commander for Bournemouth, Poole and Christchurch – and the strategic lead for hate crime at Dorset Police.
Gavin has been in this post for almost a year, after many years working within the Criminal Investigation Department. His work involved working with partners to safeguard the most vulnerable in our communities. Gavin is committed to working with PFD partners to make Dorset a safe place for everyone to live in, work in and visit.
Our Charter sets out our commitment to work together in tackling hate crime. We want to ensure our members and partners fully understand the impact of hate crime and hate incidents, so that they in turn can encourage people to report incidents either as victims or witnesses.
