Hate Crime

So, what is a Hate Incident or Hate Crime?


A crime or incident committed because of who you are or who someone thinks you are.

Quite simply, if because of your age, disability, sexuality, religion, ethnicity, gender (including gender identity) or lifestyle choice (e.g. Goth) someone or a group of people targets you, commit a crime against you, bullies you or harasses you, then this is a hate crime or hate incident.


This may include:

  • Verbal abuse
  • Offensive graffiti
  • Threatening behaviour
  • Damage to property
  • Assault
  • Cyber bullying
  • Abusive texts, emails or phone calls
  • Taking money from you.


If you are in immediate danger call the Police by dialing 999 (non-emergencies 101).
