Hate crime in any form is wrong. If hate crime happens to you or someone you know, it is important that you report it.

Reporting makes a difference – to you, your friends and your community. By reporting hate crime when it happens, you can help stop it happening to someone else. You will also help the police, local councils, housing associations and other local organisations to build up patterns of behaviour locally, and highlight areas of concern within your community.

But more importantly, you can get the support you may need and help ensure that offenders are brought to justice and cannot do the same to other people.
