Hate crime is any crime where a person is targeted because of their disability, gender identity, race, ethnicity, faith, religion or sexual orientation.How will it benefit me?
If you, a friend, neighbour, family member or work colleague are suffering as a victim of this type of crime, it is best to dial 101 and report it to police as soon as possible. We know hate crime can have a devastating impact on victims and can sometimes reduce the victims to living in fear of the perpetrator. For this, or any other reason, victims or witnesses may feel unable to speak to the police. Stop Hate UK are an independent charity who can take confidential reports of hate crimes and give advice to the caller.
The charity will then, if the caller agrees, refer the report to the police, local authority and Victim Support.
