Terrence Higgins trust is a 3rd party reporting centre and will be able to assist
anyone who would like to report a hate crime whether they witnessed it or was a victim. As well as discussing our other services
Hate crimes are any crimes that are targeted at a person because of hostility or prejudice towards that person’s:
* race or ethnicity
* religion or belief
* sexual orientation
* transgender identity
All hate crimes and incidents should be reported, whether you have been a victim, a witness or you are reporting on behalf of someone else.
These incidents may include verbal abuse, physical assault, domestic abuse, harassment and damage to property.
If a person is bullied as a result of their disability, race, religion, sexual orientation or transgender identity, this is also dealt with either as a hate crime or non-crime hate incident. Bullying could include name-calling, being spat at or kicked, or having your things taken or damaged.
