Sir Ian McKellen has become the latest resident to sign the pledge that Tower Hamlets is No Place for Hate.

No Place for Hate is a council-led pledge, striving to improve community safety in the borough of London. Ian McKellen signed the pledge at the Annual General Meeting of the charity Step Forward. As a patron of the charity, McKellen knows full well the positive effect it has as a support service for young people, offering counseling, advice and personal development to enable them to reach their full potential.

Sir Ian said: “As a neighbor and supporter of Step Forward for many years, I am still impressed by the effect caring professionals can make on a community. Tower Hamlets needs specialists who can untangle the mess which makes young lives unhappy and unproductive.”

Tower Hamlets Council’s Hate Crime Policy and Partnership manager Menara Ahmed commented, “It is vital that we all work together on this. Together we can truly make a difference.”
