Hate Crime


What is a hate crime?

A crime or an 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
  • threat of attack
  • verbal abuse or insults – including bullying
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.

Report it now!
