What to do about hate crime?

Police talking to a disabled personThe Police take hate crime very seriously and want you to feel confident in talking to them.

If you decide to send a report on the incident they will dedicate a police officer who will come and talk to you to find out more on what happened.

You can report hate crime in confidence if you don't want them to know your name and where you live.

If you don't want police to investigate, it is still good to for them to know what happened to you, so they can keep it for their record, just to make them aware of what is happening.

A no more bullying protestIf you don't want to go to police than there is a support agency called Victim Support and they offer help through their volunteers who have been specially trained in hate crime.

You can call them or complete a report and they will dedicate a volunteer who can come and see you at home.
