Let's End Hate Crime

A hate crime or incident is any incident that is perceived by the victim or any other person as being motivated by prejudice or hatred based on someone’s:

  • Race, colour or ethnic origin
  • Nationality or national origin
  • Religion, faith or belief
  • Gender or gender identity
  • Sexuality or sexual orientation
  • Disability
  • Lifestyle or dress

Hate incidents can take many forms, including:

  • Physical Attacks – such as assault, damage to property, offensive graffiti, neighbour disputes and arson
  • Threat of Attack – including offensive letters, abusive or obscene telephone calls, groups hanging around to intimidate you, and unfounded, malicious complaints
  • Verbal Abuse or Iinsults – offensive leaflets and posters, abusive gestures, dumping of rubbish outside homes or through letterboxes, and bullying at schools or in the workplace

An incident doesn’t have to include violence for you to report it. Verbal abuse, threats, or victimisation can be just as distressing and are taken just as seriously.
