Report a hate incident

A hate incident is any incident that is perceived by the victim or any other person as being motivated by the prejudice or hate of someone’s race, colour, ethnic origin, nationality or national origins, religion, gender or gender identity, sexual orientation, disability or age.

We want you to feel safe at home, at work and on the streets. If you or someone you know has been the victim of a hate incident, we need to know about it. A hate incident could include; verbal abuse, harassment, graffiti or damage to property, threatening behaviour, offensive telephone calls or texts, hate mail or email, physical assault and bullying at school or in the work place.
