What is hate crime?

Hate crime is any offence committed against a person or property which is motivated by the offender's hatred of people because they are seen as being different. You don't have to be from a minority community to be a victim of hate crime.

Hate crime hurts, it can be confusing and frightening. By reporting it, you may be able to prevent these crimes from happening to someone else. Reporting makes a difference... to you, your friends, your life.

A Hate incident is defined as:
"Any incident, which may or may not constitute a criminal offence, which is perceived by the victim or any other person as being motivated by prejudice or hate."

What can I report?

  • race 
  • religion 
  • sexuality 
  • gender identity 
  • or have a disability 

Domestic abuse involving anyone which you have a close relationship with; e.g. your current or previous partner.
